Let’s go back to the early 1990’s. Fall harvest has begun and as you make your way across the field, you are anxious to see how it’s yielding. With the wagon full, you run it across the scale to start calculating your yield estimates. Move forward to 1992, and Ag Leader’s groundbreaking technology forever changes the way yields are tracked.

Since I’ve been at Stutsmans (2014), I’ve learned one thing about spring; each one seems more hectic than the last. It all happens so fast; tillage, NH3, weed and feed, planting, and spraying again.

One way to combat this is to move your anhydrous applications to fall with the use of a nitrogen stabilizer. More

The only thing missing with a mindset like that is an accurate yield file to help with management decisions. More

Although we could go on and on about why we are excited to bring you the Digi-Star GT560, we figured we would let users from AgTalk Forum share their thoughts instead. More
