As corn planting is getting closer, we wanted to take a chance to share our recommendations for conventional corn this year. Watch the video to hear John Ortiz discuss fertility and herbicide programs. If you have any questions or would like to hear more about any product, contact us anytime.
Hey guys, John Ortiz with BigYield.us. Today we are going to be discussing our corn program. Everything from herbicides to what guys are doing on fertilizers and so on.
What we have been recommending and referring people to is we had great success with Degree Extra and Atrazine last year. We also have guys looking at the Callisto, Atrazine, Metoolachor mix for a herbicide program on corn.
On in-furrow, for the guys who haven’t applied any dry fertilizer we would highly, highly recommend our BP In-Furrow. You apply that in-furrow in the row up to 10 gallons per acre. What we preach and tell everybody is 10 gallons of our BP In-Furrow product is equivalent to a 0-100-100 dry product, based off the amount of P and K that is available for the plant to actually uptake. A lot of university studies and data backs that and so that is what we push and tell people. We have some information on that as well.
Also at planting – prior to planting – what we like to do is incorporate BigYieldCoat Corn +Zn. That replaces your talc or graphite, that’s the carrier in it. It’s a biostimulant with a micronutrient pack.
For those guys that like to foliar feed or come back over the top later on – we have guys that are going in at V4 to V5 going back over the top with our liquid plant food, which is a 3-18-18. We also want to put our BigSweetYield in again at V4 to V5. Then if you guys are coming back and applying a fungicide, that’s another good time to incorporate our BigSweetYield and our Yield Booster – when you foliar feed or apply a fungicide on corn with an airplane.
With that being said, if you guys have any questions, feel free to give us a call or reach out to us at your convenience. Thank you very much and have a great day.
