In this week’s Boots in the Field Report, Farm Journal Field Agronomist Ken Ferrie discusses how Iowa and Ohio farmers are pushing to finish up their corn and soybean harvest.

 

Along with that, he addresses the issue that many farmers have had with getting their fall anhydrous applications made.

 

“A lot of farmers need a Plan B on how to get their anhydrous on the field,” Ferrie says. “There are days this winter, even as late as February, when you can probably apply anhydrous. But don’t apply it just to mark it off your list.”

 

In the following podcast, Ferrie outline some specific back-up plans to consider for those of you who still want or need to apply anhydrous.

  It's a time thing. Big farmland hoarders aka big farmers can't get it all done in the spring and be the first one done planting. Even with 15 employees doing their farming for them

  Could someone please enlighten me on the benefits of fall applied anhydrous and/or other fertilizer? Seems like a waste of time, money, and nutrients - let alone a point of leaching/runoff concern.
