2012 Trial Opportunities

 The Iowa Soybean Association still need fields in some Iowa counties for the High Intensity Soybean Management trials and SuperCal SO4. If  you're interested in participating in these and haven't already done so, please contact Matt Sweeney immediately (msweeney@iasoybeans.com or 515-334-1048).

In addition to these trials, there are several other trial opportunities available. For both corn and soybeans, they're continuing plant population and plant nutrition studies. Other possibilities for soybean trials include plant health, insect control, and seed treatment. For corn, we're continuing our usual nitrogen and manure management trials as well. 

Growers interested in any of these can find more information at the On-Farm Network website. A convenient on-line trial sign-up form will be posted very soon. Look for it in the "What's New" section on the left side of the On-Farm Network home page.

GCSAA members – the unseen heroes of many a golf course!

Golf Course superintendents’ work is often seen, but they are rarely seen or their work realized. It is not an uncommon practice for the maintenance staff at a golf facility to be up working well before the sun comes up.

As a PGA member since 1999, I certainly appreciate the hard work and dedication it takes to be in the golf industry, but I know it takes even more hard work and dedication to be in charge of the grounds and maintenance. More times than not, GCSAA members and their colleagues do not get the accolades they deserve. I consider golf course superintendents the unsung heros of the golf industry.

Next time you see your golf course superintendent keep in mind, their jobs are often 24/7 shifts. It takes time, patience, flexibility, and supreme organization to manage 100 acres or more of managed turf, not to mention their staff and their families.

Yes, it is true; superintendents do mow grass, rake bunkers and pick up trash but consider this:

 

YOUR GCSAA MEMBER IS ALSO:

An ambassador for your facility

An environmental steward

A mentor to their staff

An agronomist for the facility

A communicator to the membership

Facility manager for the ground department

Human resources director for their area

OSHA director

Financial planner managing the facility’s largest portion of the budget

Material scheduler and planner

Landscape and golf course architect

A certified, licensed applicator

An artist

A mechanic

An irrigation technician

Meteorologist

Public speaker

An educator

A political activist

ALL IN A SINGLE DAY’S WORK!

The next time you head out the golf course, be sure to spend a couple of minutes getting to know the golf course superintendent and thank him for all the hard work and commitment they provide for your golfing enjoyment!

Groundbreaking news - we're expanding!

We're excited to announce a major expansion to our Fort Dodge manufacturing facility. We love that you love our SuperCal SO4, a naturally-mined sulfur fertilizer and superior quality gypsum product used by growers across North America. The new plant will be able to meet the growing demand for SuperCal SO4.

You are invited to attend CPI’s ground breaking on Tuesday, April 17, 2 p.m., north of the existing Fort Dodge plant, 2063 Quail Ave.

“SuperCal SO4, one of several soil amendment products we manufacture, has led industry sales as farmers and growers better understand the importance calcium and sulfur has on plant health, vitality and crop production,” explained Craig Dick, CPI vice president of sales and marketing. “Because of increased demand for a naturally-mined product such as SuperCal SO4 we’ve made the strategic decision to double our production levels over the next two years and enable capabilities to produce even more in the near future.”

Calcium Products, Inc. officials estimate the new facility will allow them to increase their employee base by up to 10% while supporting the local and Iowa economies with increased sales. Currently CPI sells much of their natural soil amendment products out of state. 

“We are proud to be an Iowa-based, employee-owned company; our customers know they are dealing with a company that exhibits Iowa values and work ethic. That, along with our ability to produce some of the most pure, high-quality products on the market, has enhanced our customers’ experience,” added Dick.

CPI also has a production facility in Gilmore City, Iowa, with warehouses and distribution centers in Alden and Aplington, Iowa.
