Read this article the other morning while watching it snow outside! Bob Nielson is one of the best when it comes to Corn and even though he’s talking about Indiana I think it correlates to Ohio well. Great reading if you have the time.
We would like to say thank you to our customers for a successful 2017 Wheat season. It’s always great to see a little green in the fields (that aren’t weeds…) this time of year. As always we wouldn’t be in business without your loyalty and support!
As we’re working to wrap up the 2017 harvest we can start to turn our focus to the 2018 Corn and Soybean early order period. We’ll be mailing out information on available varieties and programs shortly.
It was an interesting spring to say the least. A common concern this year dealt with replanting. Is it better to kill a field with a poor stand and start over, or try and plant the empty areas? Below is a link to an article in the C.O.R.N. Newsletter from OSU that covers some of the considerations to produce the highest yield. There are too many variables to ever find a silver bullet for replant situations, but it’s good to know that you always have options. One thing is for sure, we hope never have to count on this year’s experience again!
