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.”
