Question: You’ve said that it’s easy to confuse a potassium deficiency with a nitrogen deficiency. How do I make a distinction between the two?
Question: Do you have any advice on selecting corn hybrids for optimum performance?
Question: There are a lot of farmers here who have already applied their fall nitrogen. Is it ok to move ahead with that?
Question: I have ruts on top of ruts to deal with in some of my fields. The first ones are from the 2009 harvest. Then I had more after I sidedressed and sprayed corn this past spring. What would you recommend?
Question: I would like a way to safely determine when I can safely plant into strips after I have applied NH3. This past year I waited two weeks, but I would like to plant sooner. I tried a pH test but could not find a kit that tested high enough.
Question: Is there much of a benefit to sizing residue?
