Field Note


The start of the year went smoothly for us, except for the frost. We finished planting in mid-May, but the early May frost caused us to reseed and thicken some fields that were no-till in early April. The ground we burnt down last fall, and hit once with the vertical tillage tool, seemed to do best this year in terms of weed control, even emergence and surviving the frost.

We do maintenance removal on potash each year based off zone yield data, and then apply 100 pounds of sulfur on every acre. We completed the application of AMS for the Supplement Your Soybeans trial at the end of April and will continue to monitor its progress with the help of Ceres Solutions.
