New Tools to Improve Irrigation Management, Plant Health, and Water-Use Efficiency

Cutting-edge chemistry for optimizing soil-plant-water relations.

Presented by Aquimax.

NOW ON DEMAND | ORIGINAL AIR DATE: FEBRUARY 15, 2018

Water management is one of the biggest challenges facing the agricultural industry, especially in regions where water supplies are limited by source or community environmental restrictions. Soil surfactants and amendments have traditionally been limited by inconvenient handling and application requirements. This webinar explores a new advance in chemistry that uses existing irrigation equipment to improve the precision of delivery while increasing water holding capacity for many soil types.

The Forgotten Few: A Primary View of the Secondary Macronutrients

Sponsored by The Mosaic Co.

NOW ON DEMAND | ORIGINAL AIR DATE: SEPTEMBER 12, 2017

Innovative nutrient sources and application technologies have accelerated our ability to precisely manage the primary macronutrients and in some cases, micronutrients as well. The often overlooked secondary macronutrients, magnesium (Mg), calcium (Ca), and sulfur (S), are less frequently considered, despite significant crop requirements across a range of species. In fact, substantial increases in crop yield and nutrient removal during the last 20 years, along with purer fertilizers and more rigorous air emissions standards, have collectively increased the prevalence of secondary macronutrient deficiency in field. Join Ross as he explores what every farmer, retailer, and agricultural professional needs to know about the forgotten few: magnesium, calcium, and sulfur.

Building Soil Health & Biology with Advanced Crop Nutrition

Sponsored by Midwestern BioAg

NOW ON DEMAND | ORIGINAL AIR DATE: JUNE 21, 2017

Maximizing ROI in today’s low-margin market requires a crop fertility program that goes beyond traditional NPK applications. Managing for improved soil organic matter can pay dividends on the farm by improving nutrient efficiency and availability, as well as plant uptake, resiliency and yield. In this webinar, we will discuss the relationship between soil organic matter, soil microbes and plant nutrient uptake, and how fertilizers made with the newly released TerraNu Nutrient Technology™ can leverage all three of these components for improved crop performance.

I would like to thank the author(s) of the two part article concerning bringing employees in to agriculture and retaining them. I was blown away by these thoughts and the implications they have on the true reality of thee matters. I was also impressed with the high demand for new employee partners in Agriculture and believe that to be a strong statement about the bright future of this industry!

Respectfully,
