Landus Leading Optimization of Local Cooperative Model for Benefit of Farmer-Owners

AMES, IOWA (April 12, 2021) - Landus, a farmer-owned cooperative based in Iowa, is leading a strategy to implement an innovative alternative to traditional mergers and acquisitions for local agricultural cooperatives and independent businesses, optimizing overall performance. It is focused on improving service and competitiveness to drive more value for its collective membership and customers, while maintaining local influence and identity. NuWay-K&H is the first cooperative to collaborate in this innovative, new model.

The past week has brought high temperatures across southern Minnesota, and it’s not looking to cool down any time soon. However, right before these 90 degree days swept into the area, we experienced temperatures down in the 30s. With that, comes frost damage. Frost damage can be visible on the plant in a few different ways. Most of the corn in our region still had the growing point below ground when the frost occurred and therefore will not see a stand reduction of yield hit. When corn gets to about growth stage V5 is when the growing point normally is at or close to the soil surface and then colder/freezing temperatures will have a more drastic effect. Click here to read more about early season frost damage.
Another thing I’m seeing out in the country are signs of micronutrient deficiencies. During these stages, your biggest micronutrients to look for are Zinc, Manganese, and Boron. These micronutrients are immobile in the corn plant, so you will see symptoms first on the newest leaves. Zinc is the most common micronutrient deficiency we see in corn, with yellow striping on the veins of the leaves. Severe zinc deficiency can even result in shortened internodes. While manganese and boron visual deficiencies can be more challenging to see on the corn plant, a great avenue to take is a tissue test. Upon getting the test back you will be able to see what the plant is getting from below ground and make an informed management decision.

Hybrid response information is pertinent to getting maximum bushels out of your product. Response-To scores provided by WinField United are a great tool to use. A hybrid that responds highly to nitrogen would be a great candidate for an added in-season nitrogen application. Examples of hybrids that have a high response to nitrogen are: B01Z88Q, B08C92AML, and DKC56-65SS. Hybrids like these will be able to pull ahead with an added nitrogen application to help reach optimum yield come fall.

The 2021 Dicamba trainings are now avaible to you.

BASF and Bayer have provided new ways to complete your annual dicamba applicator training. You must complete one of these trainings before applying approved formulations of dicamba. 

Join us to learn about new application requirements and label enhancements for the 2021 season. Applicator training and certification can be obtained in multiple formats based on your schedule and needs. Due to COVID-19, dicamba applicator training will be primarily available through online offerings such as a self-paced training module and live virtual webinars. Either training will suffice for the requriement. Follow the links below to register.

FarmRx Offers Datalink Program

Datalink is a FarmRx program offered through NuWay Agronomy to growers that want to harness more information from the data being created on their fields.  Datalink is a shared experience between a Grower, Trusted Advisor, and FarmRx. 

All data is valuable, and the Datalink program helps connect the data sources to a program to help analyze and produce insights that can be used to make decisions on a field.  It is not a grower’s intention to do any task on their field for nothing. There must be an ROI or a reason for adding a product or making an adjustment to a practice. Datalink enables growers an opportunity to learn about products and practices they are not using by comparing their practices to others, giving them opportunities to learn faster and it also allows them opportunities to have access to product trials before non-Datalink growers.

Datalink is the gateway to our AgSolver Profit Mapping System which will allow growers to take the next step in farm financial planning and reporting. FarmRx integrates our Datalink growers with industry leaders to make sure they are always on the cutting edge.

EPA Announces 2020 Dicamba Registration Decision

Brooklet, Ga. (October 27, 2020) — At the Cromley Farm, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler announced that EPA is approving new five-year registrations for two dicamba products and extending the registration of an additional dicamba product. All three registrations include new control measures to ensure these products can be used effectively while protecting the environment, including non-target plants, animals, and other crops not tolerant to dicamba.

“With today’s decision, farmers now have the certainty they need to make plans for their 2021 growing season,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler. “After reviewing substantial amounts of new information, conducting scientific assessments based on the best available science, and carefully considering input from stakeholders we have reached a resolution that is good for our farmers and our environment.”

Through today’s action, EPA approved new registrations for two “over-the-top” (OTT) dicamba products—XtendiMax with VaporGrip Technology and Engenia Herbicide—and extended the registration for an additional OTT dicamba product, Tavium Plus VaporGrip Technology. These registrations are only for use on dicamba-tolerant (DT) cotton and soybeans and will expire in 2025, providing certainty to American agriculture for the upcoming growing season and beyond.

To manage off-site movement of dicamba, EPA’s 2020 registration features important control measures, including:

  •  ~ Requiring an approved pH-buffering agent (also called a Volatility Reduction Agent or VRA) be tank mixed with OTT dicamba products prior to all applications to control volatility.
  •  ~ Requiring a downwind buffer of 240 feet and 310 feet in areas where listed species are located.
  •  ~ Prohibiting OTT application of dicamba on soybeans after June 30 and cotton after July 30.
  •  ~ Simplifying the label and use directions so that growers can more easily determine when and how to properly apply dicamba.

The 2020 registration labels also provide new flexibilities for growers and states. For example, there are opportunities for growers to reduce the downwind spray buffer for soybeans through use of certain approved hooded sprayers as an alternative control method. EPA also recognizes and supports the important authority FIFRA section 24 gives the states for issuing locally appropriate regulations for pesticide use. If a state wishes to expand the federal OTT uses of dicamba to better meet special local needs, the agency will work with them to support their goals.  

This action was informed by input from state regulators, grower groups, academic researchers, pesticide manufacturers, and others. EPA reviewed substantial amounts of new information and conducted assessments based on the best available science, including making Effect Determinations under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). With this information and input, EPA has concluded that these registration actions meet Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) registration standards. EPA believes that these new analyses address the concerns expressed in regard to EPA’s 2018 dicamba registrations in the June 2020 U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Further, EPA concluded that with the control measures now required on labels, these actions either do not affect or are not likely to adversely affect endangered or threatened species.
