Are you ready to cut hay?

As we approach the midpoint of May, many farmers are preparing to harvest the 1st cutting of this year's hay crop.  I have noticed that a few producers have already begun, and more will get started soon if the weather cooperates!

Dr. Stephen Barnhart, ISU Extension Agronomist, gives some good suggestions on timing the 1st cutting. www.extension.iastate.edu/CropNews/2010/0513barnhart.htm

Matt Digman, University of Wisconsin-Madison, has some tips on making sure your equipment is ready to go.  www.agweb.com/news_printer.aspx?articleID=157317

98G Calculator Instructions

98G Calculator Instructions

This calculator is intended to utilize your soil test data to calculate an application rate for 98G.
  • Start by selecting in the first drop down box which target pH you are trying to achieve. This will depend on your geographic location, soil type and which crop you are trying to grow. Next, in the second drop down box, select your tillage type. Tillage type influences the application rate by exposing a different volume of soil to the 98G application.|

  • In the third box, enter the 'Buffer pH (or Buffer Index)' data from your soil test. In the fourth box, enter the 'Soil pH (or Water pH)' data from your soil test. 

  • The rate should automatically calculate for you after you enter the soil pH into the fourth box, and the larger box to the right titled '98G Rate' should flash blue and show you the application rate calculated for the information you entered on the left. You can also click on 'Calculate' to ensure the calculation has been executed correctly.
