Growers: Spring Plant Preparation Ideas

It’s no secret that in the winter months there is a lot of planning and preparing that takes place before spring planting. We know that taking care of everything is hard enough, esecially when you are running a progressive operation. Maybe this year you plan to implement some new programs into your 2018 planting season, but don’t know where to start. In order to achieve a successful spring planting process, here are a few things to think about while there is still time.

  • Soil sampling that was not done last fall
  • Herbicide mix sheets with rates and mixing orders
  • Herbicide program adjustments, such as, a better burndown program
  • Planter checks and adjustments
  • A fertility program to meet your yield goals
  • Starter fertilizer with micros
  • In crop applications: nutritionals, fungicides, and insecticides

We believe that making sure your crops get off to a good start this spring is the beginning of a successful growing season. Novus Ag carries advanced row starter products and starter fertilizer nutritionals to help with those growing needs. Triton, for example, is a starter fertilizer nutritional, formulated with unique technologies that have a history of boosting crop performance. Check out some pictures below.

We encourage you to take advantage of these months in between, so that when spring rolls around everything is in place to have a great season.
