NEWS FROM THE FIELD
Many farmers have commented about the fact that they didn’t get the opportunity last fall to do any deep tilling. The soils are very saturated with moisture. Some soils will be very tight and others have been compacted due to heavy equipment travel on these wet, tight soils. We’d encourage you to check out our product, KRUSTY. This product reduces soil compaction, allowing water and air to move deeper in the soil profile. As a biologically fermented extract, Krusty contains multiple polymers and bio-surfactants that will swell and shrink within the soil, reducing the natural binding effects of compacted soil. Krusty can easily be applied with your in-furrow planting application, or applied with your pre application at a price between $4.25/a (in-furrow) to $8.50/a broad coverage (pre). Much cheaper, and healthier than chemical products or deep tilling.

Crop talk: With corn spraying nearly completed, many farmers are moving into spraying beans, and thinking about side dressing nitrogen for their corn. Let’s talk about getting the most from side dressing that nitrogen and consider foliar options as we head toward our crops reproduction stage.
Molybdenum 3% is an essential micro nutrient that drives the plant and microbial reactions that fix nitrogen and convert it to amino acids, and eventually proteins. This product is easily, and economically(less than $1/acre) added to the nitrogen side dress application to make the nitrogen feed more plant available, sooner. MORE AVAILABILITY = GREATER PRODUCTION
Foliar MicroBoost is a boost of micro nutrients that should be fed to our crop as it heads toward the reproduction stage in it’s life. This foliar feed helps boost plant health and production with many of the most important micro nutrients needed.
