Rain makes grain. But too much winter or spring moisture can rob plants of the nutrients they need to grow and mature. Whether side dress is part of your planned fertility program or a new consideration driven by this year’s weather, choose the best equipment to get the job done right.
Think about what it takes for your hay crop to become a high-value feed source for your livestock or hay-buying customers: good timing, attention to detail and a little bit of luck.
