1. Grain Profitability FINIDNG A NEW HORSE FOR A NEW RACE

2. Doanes’ Says… 1981 1991 2001 2006 3-D Column 1 0 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 3 TONNES YEAR TONES PER HECTARE 1981 1991 2001 2006 MILLION TONN 0 100 200 300 400 500 600 WORLD GRAIN STOCKS

3. HOW DOES IT LOOK WORLD YIELD VS CARRYOVER 0 100 200 300 400 500 600 1981 1991 2001 2006 0 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 3 3.5 CARRYOVER YIELD  GIVEN THE TRENDS THE WORLD WILL BE 63 MILLION TONNES SHORT OF GRAIN OR 20 MILLION HECTARES OF NEW GROUND

4. How does planting date affect yield? • The date itself does not really make the difference. • It seems to be the pollination time relative to weather that makes a difference

5. BETTER USE OF FERTILIZER • HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH? • HOW MUCH IS TOO LITTLE ? • HOW MUCH TO MAKE THE MOST MONEY?

6. How did ESN perform?

7. ESN DRY STARTER ONLY

8. NITROGEN SULFUR UP FRONT

9. ESN TRIAL-CORN NO ESN & SIDE DRESS

10. ESN TRIAL—CORN W/ESN & SIDE DRESS

11. ANHYDROUS ALL UP FRONT

12. ANHYDROUS SIDE DRESS

15. WHAT CAN WE TAKE AWAY? • Samples were taken when corn was about the third collar—good timing of application to N usage • Cover crop does help tie up soil & nitrogen • We did see that 70 lb. nitrogen will get a crop safely and had the second highest tissue reading…this was on sandy, light soil. • Nitrogen timing…not quantity makes the biggest difference • Good overall nutrient balance is the most efficient use of nitrogen • Follow your soil sample results for proper balance

16. Current nitrogen study shows… • Yield goal based nitrogen guides provide too little N to 20% of the field • Provide right amount to 20% of the field And… • PROVIDE TOO MUCH NITROGEN TO 60% OF THE FIELD

17. ESN ON WHEAT • We had some great results! • Product releases on a continual basis and does not promote rapid growth • Cell walls of the shoot appear to be kept strong and resist lodging • Nitrogen released in the boot stages did help improve protein content

18. ESN does allow you to shift from ammonium sulfate and regulate the amount of sulfur you apply to the field, and helps maintain pH. Consider switching sulfur needs to K-Mag.

19. Soil Sampling • This one sample represents up to 50 acres of your farm • It needs to be treated with care and consistency • It is a tremendous opportunity…

20. While we are there we can… • Review soil tilth • Review weed control • Notice any wet holes, dry knolls • Be able to notice areas of compaction • Be able to make a better rec’s.

21. What are some things we notice? • What about those pH’s?— why are they low? • Lime is the best way to correct pH!! • Damp Lime or Dry Lime? – Key is to lime when needed. Once we get below 5.8 pH we consistently see yield loss due to low magnesium uptake. – Weed control begins to diminish at 5.5 pH

22. O. K. we have a low pH • Not all is at loss, a moderate investment will return you substantial yield gains • Plan on a lime program for 2-4 yr. cycle • Supplement a foliar feeding of magnesium – 2 to 4 lbs of magnesium sulfate per acre – This applies to corn, beans and small grain – This is a great opportunity to supplement a little nitrogen or potassium at the same time

23. Copper is King • Copper is a micro nutrient-use it in moderation • Copper helps with wheat test weight • Copper has natural fungicidal properties • Great opportunity to foliar apply some magnesium at the same time!
