NEWS FOR HEART OF MISSOURI MFA
Now is the time to be finalizing management plans on your farm. Over the next couple of months we would like to set up meetings with as many growers as possible to discuss your plans for seed, fertilizer and chemical. Finalizing plans early can reduce unwanted stress later when you need to be in the field. Don’t forget about Crop Insurance! MFA is now carrying Crop Insurance for the 2017 cropping year. Crop insurance is a great way to limit your risk and is highly recommended by farm lenders. With crop insurance offerings being the same no matter the seller. Wouldn’t it make sense to buy from someone who knows your farm? If you have any questions or would like to get something scheduled, stop by your local Heart of Missouri MFA or give us a call.
Areas of the Southern Plains and southern Midwest will see rain today, good for soil moisture, hard on field work. Mixed precip in the Northwest. » More DTN Weather Commentary

Nothing is a 100%! If you know me very well, you know I’m a very analytical person. I tend to think, rethink and sometimes over think most things. So when it came down to a herbicide program on my beans, I had a plan. I practice no-till on my farm and just started experimenting with cover crops. I knew marestail would be an issue on the farm and would have to control the cereal rye cover crop. I sprayed early with a good tank mix of products. Overall the field had been relatively weed free, but found some surviving marestail.
Did the program work? Most definitely? I most likely controlled 99% of the weeds in the field. Am I happy with my escapes? No, but I’m already thinking about improvements I can make next year. In our business, nothing is one hundred percent, but that’s not going to stop me from trying to get there. Brad
