Red October – Agronomy Episode

Landus Podcast for web site 040422 vf

On this episode, host John King and agronomist Dan Bjorklund sit down and talk about what they are seeing in fields and the market as harvest begins. From soybean cyst nematode to updates on the fertilizer market, this episode has you covered.

Dan spends time talking through soybean cyst nematode and how we must consider tolerance versus resistance and look at seed selection that offers both offensive combined with defensive as a path to dealing with this issue.

Also discussed was a growing concern -- tar spot. Dan and John explore thoughts on the impact of tar spot on this year’s yield and Landus’ approach for furthering research into tar spot at our Farnhamville research test plots. We will have a recommendation going into next year as to what we feel will be the best solution to manage tar spot. The Landus YouTube channel offers additional resources.

The fertilizer market is still messy and we are impacted by plants not working, lack of supply, the war, and the price of natural gas. John encourages listeners and Landus farmers to stay on top of their fertilizer needs by keeping in communication with their Landus representative or the GROW Solutions Center.

Finally, the episode closed with the Product of the Month. This time we featured YaraVita® PROCOTE™ and Titan® XC. This winning combination will maximize your production potential. Titan XC is used in dry fertilizer blends and helps growers get more out of their applied P & K fertilizers by increasing nutrient availability. ProCote delivers the micronutrients in an application that has 99% less granular dust and more consistent distribution. Check out this video by host John King.
