Yield Data

Harvest is winding down and as we switch from those activities to planning for next year lets discuss yield data and some simple areas to start to make this more useful.

What's in a Yield Map?

3 mph back and forth across a field gives plenty of time to think. What's the grain cart doing? Why aren't the trucks getting back? Then you stare at the yield monitor and watch that picture come together. Does that picture make sense? Does it fit the management of the field?

Waterhemp Control

Waterhemp is a weed that can be found across our trade territory. This is a weed that produces seeds at such a high rate fields can go from "thinking we have waterhemp in them" to "covered end to end with it."

Think Fall for Spring Weed Control

Fall is the perfect time to start weed control on problem fields. If you are encountering kochia or marestail issues especially plan a program to start this fall to get ahead of these weeds.

Analyzing your herbicide program

The combine seat always gives us a good view of the results from the decisions made during the year. Weed control is always at the top of the list as we roll into harvest and then make plans for next year.
