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.


Seed bed preparation plays such an important role in determining your crops’ yields that it warrants your full attention. This spring, it likely deserves a healthy dose of flexibility, too.


Soil compaction is one of those things that happens when you’re trying to get ahead. Instead, it can set your fields back for years. Consider the consequences before you try to gain a day or two this spring.


If you expect you’ll be up against some especially tough field conditions this spring, consider a new tillage tool or an upgrade to an existing one. But make sure you get the right one for the job.


If you missed last fall’s soil sampling window, be sure to pull those samples this spring. It will save you money.

In many parts of the country, fall turned to winter seemingly overnight. For some, that made the last few rounds of harvest more challenging. For others, that meant an end to fall tillage. If winter shut down your schedule before you or your agronomist could pull soil samples, you still can — and definitely should — test soil this spring.
