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.

Improving Your Fields with the R7 Tool and Soil Testing

Spring 2021 will be here before you know it! This week, agronomists Joe Slosarczyk and Nick Baker go in depth on preparing your fields post-harvest.

Joe shows you, step by step, on how to use the R7 tool from Winfield United to evaluate your hybrids’ performance and decide on improvements for spring.

Then, Nick gives his post-harvest recommendations for fields, detailing the benefits of soil testing and fall fertilizers. “It’s important to talk about soil health and nutrients, to have a precision map of where the nutrients are in your field and where they need to be,” says Nick, “When we talk about nutrient application in the fall, we definitely want to take a look at those soil results, and we want to talk about applying phosphorous and potassium right now.”
