The 2020 wheat harvest is now completed, and it was a very successful harvest for most of Sumner and Harper county farmers. Overall, this year’s harvest provided some of the best yields many growers had seen in a long time. With yields in mind, there are a few things to think about when preparing for the wheat planting season that is nearing.
Let’s talk corn diseases! As most of you are aware, looking around in the country there are more acres planted this year of corn, compared to the last few years. The timing was right to get the corn in the ground this year and so far, we have received rain at the right time.
Summer is upon us and it is already getting HOT! Did you know that with warm temperatures and no rain, urea can lose up to 35% of it's nitrogen just 18 days after application? If nitrogen is lost in the atmosphere, it is not available for plant uptake!
Harvest is now upon us, which means we need to be thinking about double crop! We have a wide variety of seed options to fit all of your double crop needs. As we move toward double crop planting, we are excited to announce that we have lowered the price on some of our best options.
