Updated COVID-19 Customer Information

March 25, 2020 

Dear NuWay-K&H Cooperative Owners and Customers: 

The COVID-19 situation is continuing to evolve rapidly. We want to reassure you that the entire NuWay-K&H Cooperative team is taking steps to protect the health and safety of our employees, our owners and customers, and the communities we serve.  We will continue to monitor the situation and would like to update you since our last communication.   

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz has announced the shelter in place executive order effective Friday, March 27th to April 10th.  We assume that Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds may enact a similar executive order at some point soon as well. Due to these new developments, our offices in Clear Lake, Trimont, Welcome, and Wesley will be closed to the public.  Since NuWay-K&H Cooperative is classified as an essential industry, our agronomy, energy, and retail store operations will continue to provide the products and services you need. Our Agronomy, Energy and Retail operations will continue to refine their plans to ensure we can maintain operations to support your business. 

As the busy spring season unfolds, we will continue to adjust as circumstances change. While there are still many unknowns, I am confident in our team and our ability to serve during this unprecedented time. 

For NuWay-K&H Cooperative to do its part in limiting the exposure to our employees and customers, we would ask that customers do their best to conduct business with the cooperative remotely. At this time, we ask our customers to do the following: 

 - Conduct your business with NuWay-K&H Cooperative via phone, email, or other digital platforms.
 - If you are sick or have been exposed to someone who was ill, do not come into any NuWay-K&H Cooperative locations.
 - Contact your account manager or call 1-800-445-4118 to schedule an appointment for pick up or delivery of products.  Please give us as much notice as possible so we can plan accordingly.

We want to reassure you that our business continuity plan is in place, and we will continue to serve our customers during the upcoming spring season.  Deliveries will be made, custom application will be available, retail stores will be open, and our 24-hour fuel pumps will be accessible.  Communication will be key during this time.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your NuWay-K&H Cooperative Account Manager or call 1-800-445-4118. 

Cooperatively, 
Kevin Jones 
NuWay-K&H Cooperative President/CEO

2020 Liberty Insights

Liberty has been proven to give excellent control of a broad spectrum of weeds. NuWay Agronomy has helped put together a few tips to help you get the most out of your post application with Liberty.

-When it comes to Liberty, timing is critical. It is important to spray weeds when they are less than 3” tall. Make sure to avoid early morning and late afternoon applications.

-Pay close attention to the weather when making an application. The ideal day to spray Liberty for maximum efficacy is a warm and humid day, with plenty of sunshine.

-Contact is important when it comes spraying Liberty. It is important to use at least a minimum of 20 gallons of water per acre as a carrier. Adding a Water Conditioner like Class Act NG to your tank mix can make a huge difference when it comes to weed control. Class Act NG has been shown to increase herbicide uptake in weeds by over twice the amount of AMS alone.

Saltro Seed Treatment Available for 2020 Season

Upgraded SDS Protection continues to be a focus of discussion because of its devastating effect on soybean yield.  As the disease continues to wreak havoc on yields, your farmers may be looking for better protection for their crop. They plant NK® varieties with SDS and/or SCN resistance but have only had one seed treatment option to rely upon. Have they ever asked you what else they can do to manage this disease? You’ll now have another option to recommend that is an upgrade over the standard to which you’re both accustomed.
    
Saltro® fungicide seed treatment will be available for use in the 2020 season. It will offer superior protection from SDS and will have activity on a broad spectrum of nematodes, including soybean cyst. Your customers will be able to continue planting earlier into cooler, wetter soils and know they have the best SDS protection without any plant stress side effects.

BRINGING NEW TECHNOLOGY FASTER AND MORE EFFICIENTLY

Precision agriculture has created a multitude of ideas and services for more intensively farming the land. Current thought is to tie together as many of these ideas and services as possible in a systems approach, in order to maximize the profitability of each acre.

This means matching our recommendations to the unique needs of your fields. In doing this, we avoid relying on one product, software brand or technology tool like R7®, Climate FieldView™ or Adapt-N. Each field requires a different tool or set of tools, and these tools may change from year to year.
