Devin Baker, Inside Sales/Technical Agronomist at BW Fusion, brings you his top takeaways this season from the fields of Indiana, Ohio and Michigan.
Learn how a Guthrie County, Iowa, grower saw their phosphorus and potassium levels double after just two years of applying Meltdown.
“What’s wrong with my soybeans? They just aren’t very deep green, and they’re growing slowly.” A question we’ve heard all too often this growing season. In the past, the problem has often been Iron Deficiency Chlorosis (IDC) and HPPD inhibitor chemical carryover. But this year, another factor may be at play.
Through decades of research, we’ve seen the benefits of biological crop nutrition products on soil health and fertility firsthand. We’ve seen growers drastically reduce their input costs through the use of BW Fusion biologicals—some have even completely eradicated traditional fertilizer applications of certain nutrients. See how biologicals can help maximize fall fertility.
The nodal root system acts as corn's control system, working day and night to develop a healthy crop. Learn how to maximize your plant’s nodal root system.
Much of the Midwest and Southern regions are experiencing levels of drought ranging from “abnormally dry” to “exceptional drought.” Learn how microorganisms in biological crop nutrition products improve plants’ stress tolerance and ability to withstand drought conditions.
BW Fusion understands the importance of having a complete biological crop nutrition program. That’s why we have a full lineup of in-season products to help you build up walls to protect your plants.
One of the most stressful factors of the growing season is learning how to navigate crop diseases. There are countless diseases that take over fields and lower yield potential—hurting your bottom line. Here is a quick rundown of some of the most common diseases to be on the lookout for in your corn and soybean fields this summer.
Weather is always top-of-mind for growers, and this season is no exception. BW Fusion growers range across the country from regions facing Dust Bowl-like drought conditions to areas receiving high amounts of moisture. Both of these scenarios, and all the variations in between, come with their own set of concerns and crop management considerations.
Pigweeds such as waterhemp and Palmer amaranth are sneaky species that have a tendency to make an appearance in fields across the Corn Belt. Learn about these pesky pigweeds and develop your management plan for this season.
BaselineRx, a new program offered by Agronomy 365, is the key to unlocking a clear understanding of the nutrient levels and health of the soil within your fields. By creating a map of the unique zones that make up your fields and testing each of those zones, you get a more accurate look at what’s happening in your soil.
When you have a cold, you may look to zinc to help boost your immune system. Similarly, zinc helps protect crops against cold temperatures. That’s not the only function of zinc, though. Zinc is a key component of multiple enzymes responsible for metabolic reactions in all crops. Without these enzymes—a.k.a. without zinc—plant growth and development would stop. Let’s dive into more reasons why zinc is an essential micronutrient.
