Thoughts from Brian...

Let’s see how you answer the following questions regarding some of your plans for crop inputs.
How do you determine what herbicides, fungicides and insecticides to use in your operations? Name Brands – Generics - Historical Performance - Promising Performance – Price – Rebates - Financing Options – Recommendations by agronomists – Ease of application – Other… Maybe all the above?
What fertilizer products do you use and why do you use them? What drives your decision to apply a specific product and when you apply it? Fall applied – Spring applied – Starters – Y Drop – Sidedress – Worked in – Spread over top – Foliar micros – Manure - Other… You have lots of options so how do you know you are making an informed decision?
Do you know what herbicides should NOT be tank mixed with Enlist One? Hint: There are a few…
How many modes of action does your fungicide have? Hint: They are not all the same!
