CORN Let’s leave status quo in the dust. It’s time to tune out all the noise and focus on what works. WinField United offers the right tools to make the best agronomic decisions for your corn crop. We use the latest technology, including satellite data, to help determine which nutrients and crop protection products make the most sense for your acres and hybrids. It’s technology that leads. It’s technology that yields.

KEY TAKEAWAYS 1

Optimize yield potential by understanding hybrid response to population.

2

Understand hybrid response to crop rotation and soil type.

3

Consider split and in-season nitrogen applications.

4

Understand a hybrid’s potential ROI with fungicide applications.

5

Use quality data from WinField United for informed decision-making.

CONSIDER POPULATION u RESPONSE-TO-POPULATION RANGE: 1.2 TO 18.4 BUSHELS At nearly 200 Answer Plot locations, hybrids are carefully evaluated for their specific response to plant populations. The data from these evaluations

CORN

®

are used to determine our response-to-population (RTP) scores, which are available from your WinField United representative and through the R7 Tool. ®

HYBRID POPULATION COMPARISON

®

Planting each hybrid at the right population is key to optimizing its performance potential. In this example, note the ear flex and decrease in root size and stalk diameter when the hybrid has a low response to population (RTP). With higher RTP characteristics and more fixed-ear hybrids, the hybrid with a high RTP maintains root diameter at higher plant densities.

HYBRID PERFORMANCE AT DIFFERENT POPULATIONS CROPLAN seed’s proprietary RTP ratings range from low to high. A high RTP score identifies a hybrid that shows a potential yield gain with ®

increasing populations. A medium RTP score defines a hybrid as able to achieve high yields at moderately high populations, yet still maintain yield at moderately low populations. A low RTP score indicates a flex-ear-type hybrid with acceptable yield potential, even at low populations for a particular area. The charts below show select hybrids RTP scores.

All hybrids have strengths and weaknesses that must be considered when determining how they will respond under different cropping systems and on various soil types. • Matching hybrids to your cropping system will allow you to achieve optimal yield potential. Good residue, insect and disease management — in addition to vigilant scouting — are all critical to sustaining an optimal corn-on-corn system. Soils Fine Overall (2.2)

The CHT function of the R7 Tool uses data from the Answer Plot Program to compare CROPLAN seed products, as well as seed from other major companies, to see how they are projected to perform on fields like yours. Categories for comparison include soil type, crop rotation activity, plant population and management practices. For example, this CHT chart shows how hybrids A, B and C are projected to perform on fine, medium and coarse soils. ®

RESPONSE TO NITROGEN CROPLAN seed’s proprietary response to nitrogen (RTN) ratings range from low to high. A high RTN score identifies a hybrid that has an ®

increased chance of return on investment from additional nitrogen (N) inputs or managing N for later release or in-season N applications. A medium RTN score defines a hybrid as able to achieve high yields at moderate to higher N levels, yet still maintain yield in situations where N may be less than optimal. A low RTN score indicates a hybrid with an acceptable yield potential even in situations where N may be limited.

LATE-SEASON FUNGICIDE TREATMENTS • Under heavy disease pressure, split fungicide applications made during the V5 to V6 stage and around tasseling to R1 have been shown to be effective in preserving yield potential. CORN

• Late-season fungicide treatments can be especially beneficial when applied to hybrids in corn-on-corn rotations. • Thorough coverage is essential. Adding InterLock adjuvant to the tank improves spray pattern and reduces spray drift. ®

CANADA CORN SILAGE


CORN SILAGE Shortcuts. You don’t take them, neither do we. You have questions about how to improve corn silage yield. WinField United helps farmers answer these questions by selecting Data Proven silage products. We understand the importance of having the right levels of quality nutrients in the silage you feed your beef and dairy cows. This is good news for you. It’s even better news for your corn silage crop.

KEY TAKEAWAYS 1

Select Data Proven silage products; choose SilageFirst hybrids for high tonnage and high quality potential. ®

2

Consider hybrids based on forage nutrition needs.

3

Properly harvest and store your crop.

CANADA

17


SELECT DATA PROVEN SILAGE PRODUCTS This scatter graph illustrates yield as tonnage per acre on the horizontal axis and milk per ton

High Quality

as quality on the vertical axis. The lines through the center represent the trial average.

High Quality, High Tonnage

• Each year, replicated corn silage trials are planted at nearly 200 Answer Plot locations. After harvest, data are compiled and summarized over multiple years and locations to provide a performance snapshot. • Summary data are compiled and computed using the University of Wisconsin MILK2006 milk-per-ton value, then plotted on a scatter graph to show the relationship between quality and tonnage potential for each hybrid.

QUALITY

CORN SILAGE

®

High Tonnage

• For most operations, selection will be based on hybrids in the high-quality, high-tonnage quadrant to ensure optimal production potential. • CROPLAN corn silage hybrids that consistently perform in this high-quality and hightonnage quadrant are marked with the Data Proven logo on pages 20-21. ®

TONNAGE

CONSIDER HYBRIDS BASED ON FORAGE NUTRITION NEEDS Considering both nutrient requirements and agronomic factors during hybrid selection is an important risk-management tool for corn silage products. Your nutritionist can determine the parameters for nutrient needs, and your WinField United representative can use Answer Plot data in the R7 Tool to help position each hybrid for ®

®

optimal performance based on multiple variables. The CHT function of the R7 Tool uses Answer Plot Program data to compare CROPLAN seed ®

®

®

products, as well as seed from other major companies, to see how they are projected to perform in fields like yours. For example, this CHT chart shows how hybrids A, B and C are projected to

CANADA

perform at high and low plant populations when compared to the following categories*:

18

• Y  ield

• NDFD

• M  ilk per acre

• Starch

*Other categories are available.


HARVEST TIMING AND STORAGE The average farmer loses 15 percent or more of a total corn silage crop yield each year due to dry matter loss at harvest and during storage. Take these steps to help minimize losses and to ensure optimal forage quality at feedout. 1 • Harvest corn silage when the crop is between 63 and 69 percent moisture. • Apply inoculant. CORN SILAGE

• Pack densely with the correct weight. • Cover with two layers of plastic to seal and protect from spoilage.

SILAGEFIRST SEED LINE DELIVERS ®

The SilageFirst seed line of products from CROPLAN seed is specifically designed for high-producing dairy and beef cattle. ®

®

There are three types of SilageFirst hybrids. ®

LEAFY HYBRIDS

HIGH-ENERGY/HIGH-TONNAGE HYBRIDS

• Leafy stalks are thicker and more digestible, with larger ears to produce more energy.

• T  hese hybrids have more flexibility in harvest and feedout as grain or high-energy/high-tonnage silage when used in combination with leafy and floury-leafy hybrids.

FLOURY-LEAFY HYBRIDS • At feedout, floury-leafy products effectively bridge the gap between the previous year’s corn silage pile and the current year’s feed. Leafy and floury-leafy hybrids may not contain a high level of total starch, but have a softer kernel texture that is easily broken during the chopping, storage and chewing process. This

• T  hey work well when harvested first and floury-leafy hybrids are harvested last. • T  hese are appropriate for feeding after the 120+ day post ensiling when they reach optimum starch and fiber digestibility. • T  hey provide the energy and tonnage requirements to optimize weight gain for beef cattle.

allows starch to be readily digested for more available energy.

MAXIMIZING STAND DENSITY Maximizing stand density is important in order to maintain high yield potential. Here are some factors to consider when trying to obtain maximum stand density. • Proper residue management • Uniform seedbed • Proper seed depth • Proper seed-to-soil contact • A pplying a premium seed treatment

CONTROL DISEASES Select your disease package based on field conditions. • U  se R7 Tool satellite imagery to monitor plant health in terms of biomass. ®

CANADA

• K  nowing where yield potential is falling behind alerts you to disease and other potential threats to let you make in-season adjustments.

26

• Satellite imagery highlights field variability and indicates where appropriate crop inputs might help optimize yield potential.


PLACE BY VARIETY Soybean plants are hardy and adapt to a wide range of soils. To achieve your soybean seed’s optimal yield potential, match the right genetic package to each field’s specific environment.

VARIETY PERFORMANCE IN DIFFERENT SOIL TYPES In this example, which compares Variety A and Variety B, Variety A performs better in tight, heavy clay (fine) soils, while Variety B performs better in sandy (coarse) soils.

Successful herbicide applications largely depend on correct nozzle selection because nozzles help determine the application rate, uniformity of spray droplet size and the carrier volume. The specific usage will determine the nozzle type necessary to do the job. Selecting the appropriate nozzle is required for on-target application of herbicides in the Roundup ReadyÂŽ Xtend Crop System.

TRAIT SELECTION CROPLAN alfalfa seed offers a variety of traits to fit your production needs. ®

HARVXTRA ALFALFA

CONVENTIONAL ALFALFA

• Is the most advanced alfalfa today.

• Is developed through conventional breeding and is not the result of genetic engineering (non-GMO).

®

• Modifies lignin content beyond what is possible with conventional breeding. • G  ives farmers the flexibility to maintain current harvest schedules for improved quality or delay harvest for greater yield potential.

• H  as excellent alfalfa genetics for high forage quality and excellent yield potential. • Is developed with high resistance to several key insects and diseases.

• C  omes stacked with Roundup Ready Tehnology for improved weed control and excellent crop safety. ®

ALFALFA

• To be planted in Eastern Canada only.

PRACTICE GOOD IN-SEASON MANAGEMENT STAND ESTABLISHMENT

Seeding Depth

• P  lant into a firm seedbed to control seed depth. Planting into a loose seedbed often allows seeds to end up at varying depths, resulting in uneven stands. Avoid surface application unless follow-up packing is performed. • P  lanting rates do not need to be adjusted for coated seed. The planting rate for alfalfa varies from region to region, but generally 18 to 20 pounds per acre is recommended.

Soil Type

Ideal Seeding Depth

Clay

1/4 to 1/2 in.

Loam

1/4 to 1/2 in.

Sand

1/2 to 1 in.

• S  eed-to-soil contact is crucial. Water must leave the soil particle and enter the seed coat before the tiny seed can germinate. Press wheel drills, cultipackers or other roller-type devices help increase seed-to-soil contact and the number of seedlings that germinate and become established plants.

HARVEST AND STORE PROPERLY Wheel traffic and compacted soil can reduce yields. Minimize leaf loss from field to storage and minimize shrinkage from storage to feedout. Up to 28 percent of yield can be lost during the harvesting process. Damage resulting from harvest traffic reduces crop regrowth and can cause yield loss. 1

• Mechanically condition stems and use a wide swath.

• M  inimize ash content at harvest. Ash provides no nutritional value and can negatively impact fiber digestibility.

WHERE DID YOUR SOYBEAN SEED COME FROM? A FEW IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER • Monsanto continues to have an active Intellectual Property Protection program to ensure that growers are abiding by the terms of their agreements and not infringing our patents. When we become aware of saved seed violations involving Monsanto technologies, we strive to resolve these matters amicably.

• In order to purchase or use Monsanto traited seed technology, a grower must have a valid grower licence (TSA). These can be found at your local retailer. • When a grower signs a TSA, he or she agrees to, among other things, use seed containing Monsanto patented traits for a single planting of a commercial crop. This includes, but is not limited to: Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans, Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans and Genuity Roundup Ready canola.

• The integrity of this program hinges on fair and respectful treatment of grower customers. We will treat all inquiries and information as confidential as possible.

®

®

®

®

®

• Planting saved seed that contains Monsanto’s patent traits violates Monsanto’s patent right, creates unfair advantages and could impact our ability to bring new products to the market place.

TECHNOLOGY

THE HIGH VALUE OF CERTIFIED SEED LATEST TECHNOLOGY

CUSTOMER SERVICE

• Research is focused on breeding new high yielding varieties with improved disease resistance and stress tolerance

• Certified seed growers get agronomic support from their retailer before and after the sale

• Advanced seed treatment technology

• Replant policy support

• New genetics and improved traits reliably accessed through certified seed

• The benefit of convenient packaging and delivery

RELIABLE GERMINATION AND QUALITY • Certified seed is rigorously tested for quality and meets Canadian Food Inspection Agency requirements • Properly stored and conditioned for quality • Guaranteed trait purity

THE RISKS OF BIN-RUN SEED

Growers who purchase non-certified seed from an unauthorized dealer, or who save seed to re-plant, could be at risk for the following:

LICENCE VIOLATION

REDUCED GERMINATION

Most soybeans are covered by intellectual property protection, and growers must have a licence to save and plant the seed from those varieties. In the case of original Roundup Ready soybeans, growers can only save and plant a variety that was sold after 2011 and was not covered by any contractual requirement at that time, or other germplasm or varietal intellectual property patents. Check with your seed supplier before saving seed to plant.

Often times, growers planting bin-run seed experience germination rates well below those of certified seed.

®

LOST INCOME Growers who save seed to plant lose out on income they could have made from selling their soybean production to an elevator.

BUYER BEWARE – BE INFORMED

CLEANOUT LOSS

Most growers want to do the right thing and honour the contracts they sign. However, when they purchase seed that is not certified from an unauthorized dealer, there is no guarantee of what trait is in the seed. Most soybeans are covered by one or more forms of intellectual property, and growers will not be able to save and plant the seed from those varieties without a licence giving them that added right.

Loss of seed or shrink occurs during seed cleaning, and nonprofessional seed cleaning can lead to excess and costly waste, and can compromise seed vigour and seed quality.

ALWAYS READ AND FOLLOW PESTICIDE LABEL DIRECTIONS. Roundup Ready 2 Xtend soybeans contain genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate and dicamba. Agricultural herbicides containing glyphosate will kill crops that are not tolerant to glyphosate, and those containing dicamba will kill crops that are not tolerant to dicamba. Contact your Monsanto dealer or call the Monsanto technical support line at 1-800-667-4944 for recommended Roundup Ready Xtend Crop System weed control programs. Roundup Ready technology contains genes that confer tolerance to glyphosate, an active ingredient in Roundup brand agricultural herbicides.

To help preserve the benefits of our trait technology, an Insect Resistance Management (IRM) plan must be part of every farmer’s production strategy. Farmers who purchase corn products that are not designated as RIB Complete required to plant a refuge that is appropriate for that product. As part of the IRM plan for RIB Complete corn, experts recommend that growers incorporate crop rotations (out of corn), use of pyramided traits for below ground pests and, when appropriate, use of insecticides to minimize selection of resistant populations. Farmers should monitor their RIB Complete corn fields for targeted insect pests and contact their local Monsanto representative, retailer, or Monsanto’s Technical Support line at 1-800- 667-4944 if they observe any unusual performance problems.
