How to Manage Corn Residue While Keeping it From Leaving Your Fields - Marion Calmer - NNTC 2016 Presentation - MP3 Download

$19.95

Managing corn residue without it leaving your no-till fields is becoming a challenging task from the time of fall harvest to next year’s crop canopy. Because managing corn residue starts at harvest, in this presentation Marion Calmer discusses the mechanical impact that chopping corn heads, different styles of stalk rolls, stubble stompers and vertical tillage have on planting down pressure, clean seed trenches and how residue flows through planters. The western Illinois no-tiller also reviews the pros and cons of sizing corn residue, along with the economic impact it has on soil temperatures, soil moisture, earthworm populations, nutrient release, nitrogen tie-up and, ultimately, yield response.

Improve Your Chances of Raising Profitable No-Till Corn, Soybeans - Marion Calmer - NNTC 2016 Presentation - MP3 Download

$19.95

When considering the ways of improving his chances of raising profitable no-tilled corn and soybeans, Marion Calmer, a veteran no-tiller from western Illinois, relies heavily on his 31 years of independent on-farm research. As the president of Calmer’s Agronomic Research Center, he’s learned that the highest yield isn’t always the most profitable, so he makes decisions regarding inputs based on facts and financial sense. In this presentation, Calmer talks about his target of a minimum 35% return on investment for his farm when calculating input costs, and also discusses the yield impact and economic implications that accompany increasing populations, fertilizer inputs, row spacing and the lack of tillage.
