The latest issue of Performance Agronomy offers expert advice on laying the ground work for a successful harvest. It all starts now! Check out these stories on planter preparation, effective application of starter fertilization, how to balance the 4Rs of N application and more.
Lessons learned on the 2017 AGCO Crop Tour can help give every seed its best shot. See how proper down force and singulation, as well as ground-truthing and general field scouting can help you maximize your yield potential this year, as well as the next and beyond.
Good planter maintenance will not only help maximize its performance, but your yield potential as well. From seed meter calibration and cleaning to checking for wear and tear on seed tubes and disc openings, find out what to check and how.
Corn yield isn’t the only consideration when applying starter fertilizer. Placing phosphorus either alone or with nitrogen near or with the seed at planting offers several agronomic advantages. University researchers discuss the latest findings based on geographic differences, application method and more.
Balance the “4Rs” for each field to improve fertilizer efficiency. Because the soil is a terrible place to store nitrogen, learn more about the correct form, time, placement and rate of application, and how that can improve your yields and save on input costs.
The new SF6830NT high-speed rotary finishers let growers work wide and transport narrow. Released in 2015, the 6830 Series already has proved its ability to make one-pass, high-speed seedbed preparation a reality across a variety of field and soil types. Now, however, the 6830 is available in two models that fold to an exceptionally narrow, 9-foot, 10-inch width for safer, more convenient road transport and easier field entry.
What does the pairing of AGCO and Precision Planting mean for customers and dealers? Continued industry-leading innovation and growth of the network of certified Precision Planting Premier dealers. You could call it a win-win-win-win for producers, dealers, Precision Planting and AGCO.
Harvest results prove precision technology and best practices boost yields and ROI.
