Cutting-edge chemistry for optimizing soil-plant-water relations.
Presented by Aquimax.
FEBRUARY 15, 2018 1 P.M. CT (2 P.M. ET)
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.
Presented by the American Soybean Association and the United Soybean Board.
FEBRUARY 19, 2018 1 P.M. CT (2 P.M. ET)
Data collection, analysis and benchmarking are key to achieving and sustaining continuous improvement in the production of soybeans. Dr. Joe Luck, Associate Professor of Biological Systems Engineering, and Precision Agriculture Engineer at the University of Nebraska, will discuss the various tools and techniques required to establish a valid data benchmarking program. Using examples of data applications from farm research studies focused on soybeans, he will show how data can be used to gather knowledge to improve production, and build a more sustainable farming operation.
Presented by Spensa Technologies.
FEBRUARY 28, 2018 1 P.M. CT (2 P.M. ET)
Advancements in ag technology help us work smarter and faster – uncovering problems as they occur, finding solutions that minimize losses, and even predicting pressures before they hit. David Swain, sales director for Spensa Technologies, has managed ag technology and precision agriculture for various companies for more than 20 years. He will share how technology is currently impacting efficiencies in the field, and more importantly, the role data plays in creating information that can be used by retailers and farmers to manage pest pressures and protect yields. David will also introduce the opportunities for predictive technologies to demonstrate the value of ag retailers and return on investment of a strategic pest protection program.

Succeed in 2018 with the Dicamba Herbicides and Dicamba-Tolerant Traits!
Sponsored by West Central Distribution
NOW ON DEMAND | ORIGINAL AIR DATE: SEPTEMBER 26, 2017
With the initial season almost over, the herbicide and trait technology revolution continues to evolve, providing ag retailers and growers with additional tools to aid in the battle against resistant weeds across North America. This webinar will provide ag professionals with the latest information about the federally approved dicamba product labels for in-crop use for the 2018 growing season. It will also educate and update participants about the current application requirements for these products, including tank mixes, adjuvants, and buffer requirements as well as their impact on crop protection strategies for 2018.
As an additional bonus, registrants will receive our free monthly agriculture newsletter featuring expert content about in-furrow and foliar technology, application techniques, product incentives, and more.
Sign up for this webinar hosted by West Central Distribution to learn from industry experts:
- Current details on the approved labels, including application parameters, buffers, resistance management practices and training information
- An update on adjuvant technologies that have been developed to accompany the new herbicide technologies, but will also complement conventional herbicides
- How herbicide manufacturers will apply learning from this season to help retailers and growers succeed in 2018 and beyond.
- How new products for this coming season will complement the existing products available in the market.

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.

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.

Today’s cropping systems have greater demand for sulphur due to increased crop yields and the corresponding increase in nutrient needs, creating a potential imbalance. Sulphur is a critical component of crop nutrition and augments today’s high-yield systems. There is lower availability and greater need of sulphur to deliver the yields that enhance return on investment.
Fall application of TIGER Sulphur — with its gradual release characteristics — provides a great solution for improving crop results the following year. Intensive R&D results show how every dollar spent on TIGER 90CR sulphur bentonite applications on corn can return more than $3, based on average yield gain. Learn how you can open up new revenue opportunities this fall and understand how TIGER Sulphur’s fall application offers a great opportunity to maximize ROI.
The webinar focuses on the function and importance of sulphur in plant nutrition and how its reaction in the soil enhances availability of nutrients. The session will provide an ideal opportunity to learn the agronomics and economics of fall-applied sulphur.
