To enhance herbicide performance and improve application characteristics, Spectrum is the top choice adjuvant to ensure good coverage, penetration and retention, even in less than ideal conditions. Why is Spectrum so important for your herbicide application and how does it work?
All nutrients, including micronutrients, need to be maintained at optimum levels throughout the crop life cycle to maximize yield. Even though only small amounts are needed, micronutrients are key in many physiological processes in the plant including enzyme production, cell wall structure, and metabolic pathways such as photosynthesis, flowering, seed development and root growth. Shortages of any of the micronutrients (boron, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc) can have a dramatic impact on yields.
Unlock the nutrient potential of your crop for early season growth, strong root development and improved plant vigor. Virtually any crop needs one of Coastal’s Advance products at planting to maximize yields, whether a starter program is used or not. The common ingredient in our Advance products is a blend of three natural carboxylic acids that solubilize nutrients to make them more available to the crop and improve absorption and uptake.
The Market Facilitation Program (MFP) provides direct payments to help corn, cotton, sorghum, soybean, wheat, dairy, and hog producers who have been directly impacted by illegal retaliatory tariffs, resulting in the loss of traditional exports.
Throughout the crop life cycle, all nutrients need to be maintained at optimum levels to maximize yield. If any single nutrient, including micronutrients, is lacking, crop yield will be reduced. With recent heavy rains and generally wet conditions, planting practices have been altered in many areas, and soil fertility has most likely been affected.
With organic production coming into its own in American mainstream agriculture, Coastal is dedicated to providing its customers with the tools they need to succeed. We are pleased to announce the OMRI certification of Matrixx and Excel 2000. These products have proven themselves valuable time and time again, and now their value can be utilized in organic production. Please visit the Matrixx and Excel 2000 products pages for more information about how these products can improve crop yields by improving the coverage of your spray applications.
The best time to plant wheat in most NC counties is from late September through the first week in November with October being the best month. Unfortunately, this is a busy time of year as soybeans and cotton harvest tend to monopolize our time. Ideally, by Thanksgiving all of your wheat acres should be in the ground. Those who wait until December can get good yields but ultimately they are taking a gamble and would have better results with timely planting. Using a drill is the best way
Important considerations for reducing spray drift include proper nozzle selection; spray technique including spray pressure, angle and application speed; evaluation of environmental conditions such as wind direction and temperature inversions; buffer zones and susceptible crops. To maximize drift reduction potential, add Drift-X DRT to your drift reduction plan. Drift-X DRT (Drift Reduction Technology) is a consistently high-performing deposition and drift management agent that delivers 20% more product to the target and provides uniform coverage on the targeted surface. Drift-X DRT reduces the number of spray droplet fines (less than 100 microns),
Maximize yield potential by giving your crop the advantage for early season growth, strong root development and improved plant vigor. Whether a starter program is used or not, most any crop needs one of Coastal’s Advance products at planting. The common ingredient in our Advance products, a blend of three natural carboxylic acids, solubilizes nutrients for better availability, absorption and uptake.
Higher tiller counts in the late fall and early winter have a big impact on yield potential. Early tillering produces larger and more grains per head, which accounts for a high percentage of yield. Wheat needs to go into the winter with enough tillers to indicate good root establishment; a good rule of thumb is a minimum of 3 tillers/plant or 600 tillers/square yard. Managing nitrogen applications is a key factor affecting tiller development and root establishment, and it's also important to maintain the correct nitrogen to sulfur ratio. An
