Preparing for Wheat Harvest

Wheat growers who plan to store their crop should take essential steps before harvest to prepare grain storage bins properly to protect grain from pests and moisture. Your local Southern States Cooperative agronomy experts can help you select a grain bin insecticide and identify harvest measures to safeguard your stored crop from losses.

Meeting your crop’s in-season nutrient needs

In-season crop tissue analysis can uncover yield-robbing nutrient deficiencies before they impact your corn and soybean crop yields. Your Southern States Cooperative agronomy experts can help incorporate a tissue-testing plan into your nutrient management program.

Fall Fertility To-Do List

The fall season is the first opportunity to establish yield potential for the crop that will be planted the following spring. Grid sampling is a tool to establish baseline fertility values for lime, phosphorous (P) and potassium (K).

Phosphorus Options Optimize Crop Performance

From start to finish, phosphorus is a key team player with an important role in crop growth, development and productivity. Timing, availability and balancing with other nutrients help crops fully utilize available P. Start with fall soil testing to optimize P in your fertility program.

Benefits of Applying Herbicides in the Fall

Fall weed control can be an important step in keeping fields clean all year. Scout fields after harvest, follow these tips and contact your Southern States agronomy expert for solutions for your farm.

Overcome Tough-to-Control Weeds in Your Soybeans with the Right Weed Control System

Controlling weeds in soybeans requires vigilance, the latest herbicide formulations and their proper application. Southern States agronomy experts now offer three of the newest comprehensive weed control technologies and can help determine which one best fits your operation.

Scout and act quickly to sustain corn yield in challenging conditions

Corn farmers in the Southern States region can increase yield with the right agronomic inputs applied at the right time by paying close attention to the crop in 2020.

In-season Tissue Tests Starting Point to Make Up for Missing Micronutrients

Micronutrients are important for strong growth and development of corn and soybean crops at key points in the growing season. Well-timed crop tissue testing can determine which micronutrients your crops may be lacking to reach their full potential. Your Southern States Cooperative agronomy expert can help with crop tissue testing and solutions for micronutrient shortfalls.

Manage Nutrient Removal

High-yielding crops pull nutrients from the soil ― more than farmers may realize. A plethora of tools are available to ensure that your fertility plan includes levels of nutrients needed for top yields. See your Southern States expert for help to get the needed nutrients on your acres.
