CropTalk: The Sower

May 2022

And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God. (I Corinthians 2:1-5 NASB)

CropTalk: Controlling Weeds in A Volatile Market

May 2022

Author: Alex Long

This should come as a surprise to no one, but the herbicides glyphosate and glufosinate are in limited supply and have received price increases for 2022. The purpose of this article is to help you navigate this volatile market while still controlling troublesome weeds in your soybean fields. The focus will be on controlling pigweed species (waterhemp and Palmer amaranth), but the information is applicable to most of our weed spectrum.

CropTalk: In-Season Decision Making: Early

May 2022

Author: Nate Firle

The 2022 growing season kicks off our third year exploring a category of studies within Practical Farm Research (PFR)® designed to provide data to help you make more profitable in-season decisions. Compacting rain, cold snaps, frost, or hail are some of the uncontrollable in-season events that affect stands, plant health, and crop development, ultimately causing us to revisit our original plans in order to maintain profitability.

CropTalk: The Mighty Grain Sorghum

May 2022

Author: Shane Carver

Grain sorghum, or milo, is thought to be a secondary row crop in many regions of the Beck’s marketing area. It is a warm-season grass with a high level of heat and drought tolerance compared to other major row crops. In many areas of the US, grain sorghum is an ideal crop for the marginally productive, dryland acre, but an adequate pH is necessary as it is sensitive to a pH below 6.0. Grain sorghum can also be utilized in a crop rotation system, especially if root-knot nematodes (RKN) are present, as it is not a host for RKN.

May 2022

Another year brings about another round of new products and practices for Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR)® team to try.

Within those 29 new studies, 29 never-before-tested-in-PFR products will be used across the seven PFR sites and additional cooperator locations. Of those products, ten will be applied to both corn and soybean studies, twelve new products to corn exclusively, and seven to soybeans only.

The good news is that for most of these, there are effective management practices. While we can’t cover every early-season pest and disease in one article, these are some of the most common ones to keep an eye out for as planting continues and crops emerge.

CropTalk: Seed Size and Crop Establishment

April 2022

Author: Steve Gauck

To maximize yield, seeds must germinate and emerge uniformly. Seed size and shape (also called grade size) is not correlated to germination, vigor, or yield. If planting conditions are good, all grade sizes will have equal quality and the size and health of the embryo within the seed will not change.

CropTalk: The Sower

March 2022

Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there without watering the earth and making it bear and sprout, and furnishing seek to the sower and bread to the eater; so will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:6-11)
