I have been writing this blog for about 6 months now, and some may ask what is the point. When I first started with Calcium Products I found it difficult to find information about fertility and soil science that was easy to read and quick to understand. I started emailing out an eletter once a month. The topics were picked by the questions our dealers were asking me.
Then last year about this time our marketing adviser Michael Libbie suggested updating our website and adding a blog. I was pretty reluctant at first. I wasn’t sure I would have the time, or have enough to write about. Also in high school and college I was not a strong writer and I was even worse at spelling.
The more we discussed it the more it made sense. The eletters were 3 to 4 pages long, and most of us are just too busy to sit down for a good read. The blog allows many topics to be discussed in short articles. If you need more information I can give you the link, or post another article in a couple of days.
The main thing is, I am not trying to win any writing contests, or have my articles published in any scientific journal. I want to present ideas and information that you might not see in the traditional farm publications. I generally do not cite my references because if you think an idea may improve your operation, you need to research it thoroughly, making sure its compatible with other aspects of what your doing.
If there is a topic you’d like more information on or you think I am way off base, let me know. Also if your near Des Moines Iowa this week check us out at the Iowa Power Farming Show booth 2503 located in the hallway outside the Hy-Vee events center. We look forward to seeing you there.
