SEED PLACEMENT Just how important is seed placement?

Errors in seed placement can lead to problems down the road in the crop growing season. The example below goes to show just how important uniform emergence is. The pictures below demonstrate what may happen if you have consecutive plants at varying growth stages (V6 vs. V7). The plant with the lesser growth stage is at a tremendous disadvantage when it comes to competing for sunlight, moisture and nutrients. Do we know exactly what caused the difference in growth stage? Not necessarily. However, we do have an intelligent guess of what may have helped contribute to it. The frustrating part is that each of these three plants started with a seed. Each seed costs the same amount of money, but the striking factor is the difference in ROI. In this scenario alone, the V7 staged plants were approximately 30x more productive than the V6 plant (an average of 247 bushels per acre versus 8 bushels per acre). The key question here is “what will you do to help avoid or reduce letting this happen on your farm” or “what steps must I take to increase my ROI with seed placement?” Talk with your Total Precion Partners team member on ways to minimize error and increase your ROI per seed. A solution is out there!

20” vs. 30” ROWS Abstract

Several growers have asked about exploring if corn in something less than a 30” row would be profitable. We therefore conducted two different trials to explore this concern.

Trial Information

Trial 1: • Grower #1 kept all management practices the same between varying row systems, with the primary exception of seeds/ac and nitrogen/ac •

A cost analysis was then run, comparing Grower #1 with a 30” row system to a 20” row system

Trial 2: • Grower #2 tested his current total corn management system in 30” rows, to a totally different corn management system in 20” rows •

A cost analysis was then run, comparing Grower #2’s 30” row system to the new 20” row management system

Findings •

Grower # 1 saw a 4 bu/ac increase with $45 more in inputs

Grower # 2 saw a 30 bu/ac increase with $70 more in inputs

Cost Analysis of Variable Inputs

A cost analysis was run for both Grower #1 and Grower #2. This analysis was based on their additional input costs, and their resulting increase in bushels/acre.

INSTINCT Abstract

Instinct is a Nitrogen Stabilizer than inhibits the Nitrosomas bacteria in the soil. This keeps nitrogen in the stable ammonium form for a longer period of time, and also protects the nitrogen from leaching and denitrification. A trial was done to test the effectiveness of the product Instinct.

LATE SEASON N Abstract

The corn plant uses over half of its needed nitrogen after V10. Sunrise has invested in high clearance spinner machines to apply dry products on corn up to 6 ft. tall corn. Other technologies like Y-Drops are being developed that are better suited for grower application. Sunrise wants to help growers determine the feasibility of use of these new application technologies for their own use.

Goal

Determine yield response and ROI of late-season Y-Drop application using multiple N rates within different seeding population zones. Evaluate ROI of Sunrise suggested rates versus 0 rate and higher rate.

**Disclaimer: Both of these trials did not take into consideration the tissue test K values when applications were recommended. After application, K deficiency was present in lower N application rate areas, but deficiencies were concealed in the higher N rates. Late season tissue tests revealed the crop was responsive-to-deficient for K, and Potash should have been added to Urea/AMS application. Going forward, V4-V6 tissue tests will be factored into recommendations based on the model used to determine N rates. Also make note that this is a Pilot, and that recommendations will be fine tuned based on feedback from pilot users.

VRN BASED ON VRS APPLCIATION Abstract

Sidedress rates for Nitrogen application in VRS situations needs to be addressed to gain a handle on recommendations to growers. Sunrise has installed several rate controllers on Sidedress toolbars over the past two years. R7 ISI can help gain insight into application zones for sidedress application. With these increased capabilities farmers need accurate recommendations and look to Sunrise for help.

Goal

Analysis of yield response with Sidedress N rates of 10-15% below field average rate for lower populations and 10-15% above average field rate for higher populations, with the average population areas getting the field average rate. If timing of application is consistent with early season crop growth, ISI map can be used to create these zone and rates.

VARIABLE RATE SOYBEANS The last three years Sunrise Cooperative has performed soybean population trials for a 15” row planter configuration. These whole field trials showed slight yield increases in side by side plots with 15,000-20,000 population differences. Larger yield increases were seen when comparing population changes of 30,000-40,000 seeds. In our trials, we have found that the plant to plant (seed to seed) spacing is more important as the plant develops, given the space that the soybeans will use to branch out and fill the gaps with podded branches.

Key Points to Remember •

This trial used 15” rows.

• When reducing populations in soybeans, plant to plant spacing and seed to seed spacing become critical. For this reason, proceed with caution when reducing populations with a drill or air seeder. • Reducing soybean populations requires 90 plus percent germination/emergence. Therefore, a premium seed treatment would be required.

Soybean plants were pulled from various populations within a field that was variable rate seeded (VRS). Populations from left to right (in thousands): 85, 110, 100, 120

NUTRIVISION 360 Abstract

Growers had the opportunity to order NutriVision 360 Capsules through the WinField Emerald Extra Program. If customer is willing, Sunrise should take possession of the NutriVision 360 capsules and perform tests then run applications based on results, these applications would be done at progressive rates of product and a non-treated check. Ideally, the field will be enrolled in R7 VRS/ISI for 2015 to collect imagery, but this should not be a requirement.

Goal

Determine use and accuracy along with assoiciated yield response.

Trial Structure •

Had six cooperators, in the Sunrise trade territory

Broke fields into four different management zones based on R7 data, yield maps, soil types, NDVI images and soil test data

Soil samples pulled between planting and VE (0-8” samples between rows, about 14-16 cores per zone)

Tissue tests at V9-V10 and again at R1-R3

Soil Test K values that we got back from these samples were 20% higher than our “typical customers” averages, and the Resin numbers indicate on average we are at “high risk” of being K deficient at V9

Findings •

Saw a nice response from 100 lbs. of potash on tissue tests at V9

Saw no correlation toyield based on spreading 100 lbs of potash in 2015

I’D LIKE TO MAKE SENSE OF ALL MY DATA, BUT I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START. Consider It Done. Most growers are able to view and understand the data

collected from their farm equipment, but many would like to gain a deeper understanding of this data in order to make better cost-benefit decisions related to their farm inputs. That’s where Sunrise Cooperative’s Total Precision Partners (TPP) program can help. Working as a team with our professional crop advisors, our precision farming experts can help you evaluate a wide variety of crop inputs against projected yield outputs to determine the most profitable management practices for your farm.
