RealAg Radio, April 23: Soil sensing, weed seeds, and understanding down force


If the U.S. corn crop were planted in two weeks, what would that work out to for seeds per second? Host Shaun Haney starts out with a shoutout to one of our listeners who has done the math on it. Then:

  • Top Ag(ronomic) News
  • Pairing soil sensing technology with planting parameters — a look at German farm equipment company Köckerling’s partnership with Austria-based Geoprospectors.
  • An update on the potential for the Harrington seed destructor.
  • The risk of iron deficiency chlorosis (IDC) in soybeans in Western Canada and the Northern Plains.
  • Evaluating nitrogen stabilizers and a throwback to a conversation on down force, with AGRIS Co-operative agronomist Dale Cowan.

Join us for RealAg Radio every weekday at 4 pm eastern on Rural Radio 147 on SiriusXM.
