Keep The Green On Your Leaves And In Your Pocket

Jul 14, 2020

No matter what crops are in your fields, maintaining plant health should be a top priority to maximize yield potential. Healthy green soybean leaves help promote photosynthesis that eventually leads to grain fill. When plant health is compromised, so is yield potential. Here are some tips to help maintain the green on your leaves and in your pocket.

Know when to act

Is it time to spray a fungicide? To decide, you can start by reviewing the seed varieties you’ve planted. If they’re more susceptible to disease, protecting with a fungicide might be the right choice. Other things to consider are current and forecasted weather conditions, and history of disease pressure in the field. Wind-borne diseases like rust can blow up from the south, so keep an eye on conditions outside of your local area too.
 

Max Out That Potential

What do your crops need to maximize their yield potential? Obviously, there are the basics, like sunlight, water, and nutrients, but there’s more than that to consider. For example, weed control, disease management and planting populations also contribute to a crop’s health and, ultimately, its yield potential. Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to optimizing a crop’s productivity.
