April showers bring May flowers and hopefully a lot of emerging corn and soybeans! Hopefully farmers are done or moving along nicely with your planting. A lot of work was done in April; from anhydrous applications, rye burndowns, fertilizer spreading, pre-spraying, planting. Now you are looking to the next important step of your operation, scouting.
Scouting is one of the most critical tasks you can do for your crops. Like most things, early detection of problems is key. The sooner a farmer can identify and notify their agronomist about issues, will result in the issue being fixed earlier. There are a lot of potential issues that can be concerning; things to look out for would be nutrient issues, diseases, weed pressure, and insects.
We strongly believe one of the most important ingredients in our recipe for success is our employees. Through our Employee Spotlight Blog Series, learn more about the people who make up the Stutsman team. Meet Grant Gingerich, Stutsman Transportation Driver. Grant has consistently been the highest miles per gallon driver and has also been in the top mileage club since he started with us in 2006. We appreciate all of Grant’s hard work and dedication to the company; learn more about Grant below! More
