Needing to Plant Forages Now?

As the summer weather continues to challenge us with excessive rainfall, many producers are now considering what their options may be for planting a summer forage for next winter's feed needs.  Dr. Stephen Barnhart, ISU Extension, has some excellent tips & recommendations in this article: http://www.extension.iastate.edu/CropNews/2010/0629barnhart.htm

One issue that Dr. Barnhart does not address is the need to monitor soil nutrients.  Some or all of the nutrients that were applied during this growing season may have been lost.  The only way to know for sure is testing of both the soil & tissue.  Make sure to include these tools as you consider what your next steps once things start drying up.  SuperCal SO4 is an effective tool in helping the soil & microbes begin to recover.
