Good Morning!

We finally got in the fields this week in Western Ohio. Monday and Tuesday were nice until rain covered most of the state Wednesday. June 6th was a big day for guys deciding what to do with their corn acres, most taking the PP given the market has not told them to do other wise. Bean acres should increase dramatically compared to intentions a month ago, leaving a void in harvestable corn acres for this fall, which is the answer most want to know, what will be the corn price and outlook 3 months from now? Salford vertical tillage tools were very popular this week helping guys air out their fields and get in to plant sooner than ever imagined. The Salford 1200 VT tool is an extremely versatile tool. Hopefully everyone dries out soon!

Timing Options for Cover Crop Seeding
When it comes to seeding covers there are really 3 time frames to seed.
  1. Interseed at sidedress knee high corn
  2. Interseed post tassle, August time frame
  3. Post harvest with a Vertical Tillage tool
Each of these phases offers an opportunity and each has its down falls. When interseeding at side dress you have to worry about chemical residue inhibiting growth of your covers and the covers also have to make it through a dormant stage. The interseed post tassle is great because you get a growing crop that is fresh and ready to go at harvest time, the down side is the seeding typically doesn't get incorporated which relies on rainfall to germ. The final option, post harvest VT is great because it gets incorporated and it does not have to compete with a growing crop, the downside is finding time to make that past post harvest and also having good growing conditions in the fall.
These Rotary hose inter seeder bars have become extremely popular for a way to get covers growing into a standing corn crop.
This is our unit designed for interseeding cover crops and getting them incorporated while maintaining maximum ground speed.
This is an example of the side dress option. Here we mounted a Valmar Seeder on a 23 row Case Liquid Applicator
The Valmar/Salford Option Has always been the best post harvest option for seeding cover crops.
We have Closing Wheels in Stock!
A common theme I am hearing when talking to growers who have been fortunate enough to plant, is "there is a crust on top and it is wet and spongey underneath." We have had several guys call in a panic this past week looking for any type of closing wheel to help close the seed slot. The good news is we have Yetter Polys, Copperheads, Yetter Cast Spikes, and a few other options available to help guys close the seed trench. If you are seeing this issue be sure to give us a call!
I have talked a lot about how much I like poly spike closing wheels. Without beating a dead horse I will just say this THEY MAKE YOU THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE IN WETTER CONDITIONS
