Welcome to December!

The snow will start flying before you know it! Agronomist Paige Behrens from the southern territory reminds producers that it’s still not too late to apply fall fertilizers to help improve soil profiles. However, its soon, the ground will freeze, so make sure to get lime applications before that!

Agronomy sales manager Nick Baker goes over multiple modes of action heading into winter and preparing fields for spring. If you noticed extra foxtail, water hemp, ragweed, or a weed you don’t recognize, make sure to take note, snap a picture, or take a sample to share with your agronomist. Then your agronomist can help build the most cost effective way to eliminate these weeds before they take over.

Remember that all this work in the fall pays off in the spring! Prevention is the best method in weed control, and maintaining a good soil profile helps crop strength and yield.

Happy Thanksgiving!

This week, Greg Springer from Union Grove gives a recap on the success of this year’s hybrid seed varieties. With Landmark’s diverse seed portfolio, we are able to pull from different genetic pools and then work with you to see which seed variety will work the best for your ground. This diversity can also help adapt to the changing environment, such as having seed options that tolerate wetter springs.

Andy Beck continues the conversation by detailing the exciting new DeKalb seed varieties. These new varieties have been testing well in the plots, producing healthier plants and more bushels. As an added bonus, they are staying at a reasonable price!

Shoutout to our operations teams at all locations—they have been working hard this fall to meet every one of our customers’ needs. Thank you for all your hard work, you are a big part of this incredibly successful harvest!

Now that harvest is almost done, it’s time to think about prepping your field for spring. This week, Joe and Dylan tell you the best way to prevent plugging up your planter in the spring.

Joe and Dylan take you out in the fields, to show how small particles need to be post harvest. Dampening down the particles also allow the particles to stay close to the soil, speeding up the breakdown process using microbes.
