Today we are going to pick his brain about making sure we maximize the potential of our available farm ground and the crop we plant. Then make sure we feed that potential * Realistically today, talking corn and soybeans, what is the true potential of the hybrids we have access to for yield? * Why is it important to take a systems approach to managing your crop? * When you meet a new customer for the first time….where do you start with them? * Let’s start with the soil first…why is microbial diversity important? * Why aren’t there more farmers paying attention to the microbes in their soils? * Explain the underwear test * So, say we take soil tests and aren’t happy with the way they look. Of course, we understand them because we worked with Next Level Ag and your education and way of explaining them made it clear…….What are some steps we can take to start correcting this? * How do you use WEOC (Water extractable organic carbon) figures to proceed? * Explain WEOC * Should we do whole fields or leave check strips? * How do mixing biologicals like what Brody talked about with BW Fusion help with this? * How do we bust the myth or hesitation with the many biologicals on the market and the often referred to snake oil, foofoo juice, mouse milk, monkey juice, special sauce, etc.. * What should we look out for when approached by a sales person selling these products? (proof, testing, openness) * Famous tiktok about taking yields to the banker adding all the +3-5 bushels/ac * Ok, so we’ve started to take care of our soil and have the crop planted. What can we do in season to help boost the potential of our crop? * Sampling * How often and what does it cost? * Potential unlocked, how do we feed this potential? * How do we know we are maximizing the potential? * 365 plug * Understanding the why behind the what * We’ve fed the crop, reached the most potential we could get. Now what can we do after harvest to begin for next year? * What are some things commonly done in farming that aren’t good combinations? * Spreading p&k and lime in the fall like Hillebo, etc… * Any additional advice for the listeners? * Out of the farmers you work with. What do the most successful farmers all have in common? * Summary * Challenge * Closing * Remind the listener to leave a comment if this episode brought them value.
