Corn School: Field testing biostimulants for yield and ROI

The product claims are wide-ranging, he notes, including everything from better yields, reduced fertilizer use and better soil health to faster crop establishment, reduced plant stress, and improved water uptake and more. Usually priced at less than $10/ac, who wouldn’t want to try these products, says Cowan. He notes that 70 percent of plant yield can be influenced by abiotic stresses when compared to a stress-free environment.

Soybean School: Rolling the dice on double crop beans

Double crop soybeans are always an opportunity for many growers, says AGRIS Co-operative agronomist Dale Cowan, but it's important to understand the risks. In 2021, he notes that double crop bean yields ranged from 30 to 70 bushels per acre for many growers in the southwestern part of the province but good management and a little luck is required to be victorious at the harvest finish line.

The Agronomists: Dale Cowan and John Heard on determining the most economical rate of N

When it comes to applying nitrogen fertilizer, agronomists have to help determine the right rate, right placement, the right time, and the rate form of N to protect the environment and feed the crop. The backdrop to those decisions include the farm setup, soil test results, yield goals, and product availability. There's also that key decisions driver: profitability.

Corn School: Counting tassels to evaluate variable rate seeding

With the growth of precision agriculture, every year more growers adopt variable rate seeding strategies but are they effectively evaluating and fine-tuning this strategy on their farms? AGRIS Co-operative agronomist Dale Cowan believes one way to gauge the success of variable-rate corn is by counting tassels to help determine final stand populations.

Digital Soil Mapping

A great explanation as to the benefits of soil mapping for the farmer and the environment. This producer says soil mapping can pay for itself in the first year.

FieldView can even help replicate trials on your farm

FieldView allows the seamless sharing of data, which helps AGRIS serve its customers more efficiently.

Corn school: helping plants fix nitrogen

Bernard Tobin with RealAgriculture visits Dale Cowan and Hannah Brooksbank in a corn field where they are studying a new biological called Envita that will help plants fix their own nitrogen.
