It’s the Wild, Wild West – Agronomy Episode

March 28, 2022

Snake oil, foo foo juice, bug in a jug…biologicals have been given all sorts of names! While there are skeptics, the growing market and investment in biologicals has created the need to look deeper. Landus is working to help farmers understand opportunities and sift through the noise by analyzing and testing potential products in our research plots.

In our first agronomy episode, host John King, kicks off the podcast with a candid view of what we at Landus see happening with crop protection and crop nutrients in today’s volatile market. John and Landus Southeast Business Unit Leader, Matt Brown, walk listeners through a high-level review of supply challenges and expectations for fertilizer, chemical, and seed. Overall theme – it is going to be tight and a bit of a wait and see game.

Jumping into the wild west of biologicals, John was joined by the most tenured agronomy experts of the Landus team, Dan Bjorklund, Landus GROW Solutions Agronomy and Precision Lead and Dave Lemke, Account Lead. To help listeners, Landus and this team of experts systematically categorized biologicals in three buckets and talk through the benefits and opportunities.

To conclude, John and Matt bring listeners in on our Product of the Month, PhycoTerra from Heliae. Landus has been trialing PhycoTerra for several years at our research test plots. Posted below is a look at recent Landus specific trial data. For more information visit:
