Setting Yourself Up for a Successful 2024 Growing Season


March Madness is in full force—and we’re not just talking about basketball. A new growing season is just around the corner, and it’s time to get prepared to hit the field. The countdown to #plant24 is here.

Here is the ultimate pre-season checklist to set yourself up for a successful growing season:

1. Get the facts on your fields with soil sample analysis

Data = knowledge. Knowledge = power.

The best way to put the power in your hands when it comes to your fields is by collecting samples for real-time insights into the health of your soil and predictions for the health of the crops that will grow within it.

Agronomy 365’s BaselineRx is our top recommendation for comprehensive pre-season soil sampling. Agronomists work one-on-one with you to identify unique management zones within every inch of your fields and develop custom nutrient prescriptions to improve soil fertility and crop performance.

2. Treat your seed for maximum yields

Set your seeds up for success before they even hit the ground with BW Seed Treatment. This treatment brings all the benefits of Environoc 401, without the need for in-furrow capabilities.

With the ability to place BW microbes closest to the seed, the impact of BW Seed Treatment starts at the microbial level and extends all the way through germination.

3. Prime your fields with a pre-season soil fertility boost

While you’re giving your seeds a boost, give your soil one as well. BW Prime is an all-in-one solution to leave the remnants of last season behind and start the growing season with healthy, nutrient-dense soil.

Unleash the power of your soil by breaking down tough compounds and turning them into valuable plant-available nutrients for your crops to use as they grow.

BW Prime also boosts calcium levels and helps solubilize carbon—a perfect combination for improving soil resilience.

4. Check your equipment

When it’s go-time for planting, an equipment malfunction is as bad as an unexpected downpour. Take the time now to double-check all of your equipment and make sure everything is running smoothly. Here’s a checklist to get you started:

  • Lubricate moving parts

  • Perform any needed oil changes

  • Check all hitches and tires

  • Inspect lights and batteries

  • Confirm special equipment is calibrated

5. Get to know your agronomist

Bonnie and Clyde. Smokey and the Bandit. Waylon and Willie. You and your agronomist.

Just like any great duo, you’re better together. Your agronomist is your right-hand man throughout the growing season. Get to know them now, and stay in touch with them throughout the growing season to keep your crop nutrition at its peak.
