Harvest is underway in many areas, and will rapidly pick up speed in the next few weeks. I (Glen) see other signs of fall as I travel these days. The leaves are changing, the air has freshened, and fall application of fertilizer is underway.
My fall checklist includes:
- Winterize all equipment
- Finish maintenance/pre-season inspections
- Review application lists & field maps
- Order SuperCal 98G & SO4
I anticipate a busy fall season for lime application, and have been encouraging dealers to bring in product as soon as they are able to do so. I fully expect the fall movement to increase significantly in 1-2 weeks, just when the availability of trucks decreases. Getting product in now allows for flexibility in inventory management, greater control over supply, and less chance of logistical challenges (i.e. less stress)!
Please be safe this fall. Take a little extra time to remind others to be safe also.
