Triticale, Cotton, Sugar Beets and Wheat OH MY!

Triticale, Cotton, Sugar Beets and Wheat! (1).png

Good afternoon guys, Rod here at A Better Way to Farm, happy Friday. Today’s blog post is for those of you who farm something other than Corn & Beans. We will focus specifically Triticale, Cotton, Sugar Beets and Wheat.  We talk a lot about corn and soybeans because that’s our fastball, that’s the thing we work in the most.  We also spend quite a bit of time doing hay, and also have good experience consulting on milo. A big shout out to my brother, Charles, who has won the state of Iowa in the sorghum growers contest the past 3 years.

We have systems that work really good with corn, beans, and milo. But, there’s about 150 crops that we can make specific recommendations for. If you grow Triticale, we can help. You want grow great cotton, our soil test system will make specific recommendations for that cotton. Regardless of it’s two bail on dry land or much higher on irrigated. We can help.  Our system also works really well in sugar beets. With high dollar crops it’s really important we get things working correctly.  We’ve also seen tremendous results in wheat.  Several years ago a friend and client of ours in Oklahoma accidentally forgot to turn the starter pump on in his wheat field for one pass.  He had a 17 bushel to the acre decrease where no starter was used.

Regardless of where you are, whether you’re in the great northwest and growing wheat. Or you’re growing the sugar beets or barley or vegetables. We’ve got a system that can help you. It’s a system based on science. It’s a system based on pulling soil test. A system based on getting specific recommendations field by field. So many people are trying to figure out what to do after they pull their test because they get back the norms and they get their levels but they don’t know what to do with the result. Our system makes recommendations, tells us exactly what to do to get the highest possible yield for your plant.

If you’d like to schedule a time for us to talk and see if we could serve you don’t hesitate to reach out.

How To Build Your Soil Levels

Have you ever wondered how you could build your soil profile? How are you gonna build your levels? Or how to do it without breaking the bank? I’ll let you in on a little secret… the best way to build soil test levels is to leave behind the best possible residue. If we can force feed the nutrients into our plants & apply the nutrients that we’re most deficient in our levels will go up. If for instance you’re K deficient, what should we do? I highly recommend six gallon 2-15-19-3. And then go over 2×2 and a liquid potassium sulfate.  That’s how we force feed the plant.  Doing this leaves behind better residue that’s  has the nutrients that YOU need!  (In this instance higher in K levels) Doing things right helps your nutrients recycle quickly and become available for the crop much faster than in a broadcast application.

If we’re deficient in any nutrient than we need to fix it quickly. Let’s make sure every dollar we spend on nutrients gets into the plant. And then, what isn’t removed in the grain is left in the stover and helps in building our soils, year after year after year.

figure out how things work and get on the right side of them..png

Guys, you’ve heard me say it for years.  Life is not that difficult, figure out how things work and get on the right side of them.  Increasing your soil profiles will help your farm & it would be our honor to help you do just that.  Meet us at an upcoming Pro Ag and learn as much as we can so that we can figure out how it works, so that we can get on the right side of it, and make more money in 2019 and years to come.  Plain and simple.

We would love to have you join us in
