Something to NOT talk about today on valentine's day...

For those of you that somehow missed it, today is Valentine’s day. Did you get your special someone a token of your love? Maybe a card, flowers, chocolate or perfume?

Speaking of perfume, did you know that corn plants use perfume to woo beneficial growth-promoting microbes to live among their roots? These bacteria can make iron and phosphorus more available to plants and stop harmful bacteria. Very cool!

So tonight, pull that someone special close and whatever you do, DO NOT tell your Valentine about corn perfume. Just forget about corn plants for an evening, it's Valentine’s day!



Yield Starts Here is a blog for farmers, focusing on increasing yield and profitability by focusing on the soil. It is managed by Craig Dick, the blogronomist and VP of sales and marketing at Calcium Products. Find other articles by Craig and guest writers at



Iowa Power Farming Show

Come see us in Des Moines this week at the Iowa Power Farming Show. We're booth 2508.

Here's a $3 coupon off admission.

If you park at the Iowa Cubs stadium you can take a free shuttle (sponsored by us!) to the show - much easier than trying to park by the Events Center.

At 12:15 each day you can catch our presentation on Soil pH & Yield - check your event program for location.

If you want to leave the Event Center & grab a bite to eat, Buzzard Billy's is in walking distance and is a good place to grab a bite to eat.

Cya in Des Moines!


Soil health

One of our Calcium Products team ran across this USDA piece on soil health. It's compiled by the Soil Quality National Technology Development Team. We think it serves as a nice overview of what soil health means and why it's important!

Soil health is the basis for all we do. We have several agronomy experts on our staff and we'd love to answer questions about the topic. If you have any - please let us know!


We're out & about - stop by & say hi?

Stop by booth 218 at the Wisconsin Crop Management conference in the Madison, WI Alliant Energy Center and say hi to Pete!

Or, if you're at the South Dakota Ag Retail show in Sioux Falls, stop by booth 58 & say hi to Glen!

Later this month we'll be at the Iowa Power Farming Show and the Iowa Turfgrass conference — both in Des Moines, IA!


And in February, you can find us at:

The Golf Industry Show Feb. 6-7. We don't have a booth but our Brian Milam will be there to talk to customers and introduce other folks to our products' amazing impact on turf!

Agribusiness Assoc. of Iowa show on Feb. 12-13 (booth 121). Our own Craig Dick will even be speaking at 10 a.m. & 11 a.m. on Feb. 12.
