Building a “Model” Crop
Researchers at Iowa State University say crop modeling can have answer for real-life problems. According Sotirios Archontoulis, an assistant agronomy professor at ISU, growers could benefit greatly from individualized yield projections.

EncircaSM services from DuPont Pioneer is among the leaders in crop modeling. “Crop models can assist farmers with timely management decisions by accurately simulating and predicting crop growth and development,” said Travis Kriegshauser, Encirca services senior services manager …Continue Reading


Crop Insights
Soybean seeding rates
Higher seeding rates for soybeans can offer advantages, such as earlier canopy closure and lower weed competition; however, it does not always result in greater profitability. In one study evaluating a variety of seeding rates, DuPont Pioneer found that seeding at 250,000 seeds/acre was the most successful, but yields were very similar to seeding rates at 150,000 and 175,000 seeds/acre, demonstrating the soybeans to adapt to reduced stands… Continue Reading

Soil Compaction Could Limit Yield Potential
Soil compaction—whether it is surface crusting, sidewall compaction, shallow compaction, tillage pan or deep compaction—restricts root grown and reduces air and water movement in the soil, limiting yield potential.

The best strategy to minimize soil compaction is to avoid working wet soils, especially in the spring. If work is inevitable, there are several things growers can do to limit compaction, including increasing the surface area of tires to reduce deep soil compaction, alter tillage depths to avoid tillage pan effects and avoid excessive tillage … Continue Reading
