Supply Meets Demand and Call Before You Dig

Fertilizer Update by Rob Fritz

We are seeing slow downward progression of nitrogen pricing in the terminals.  We expect that to continue through the sidedressing season.  Supplies of fertilizer products are keeping up with demand, and I expect that to continue.  However, look for increases in energy costs to affect fall fill pricing on fertilizer. I have also had many ask about where one could find a mobile fertilizer mixing system.  We recently bought one for use on our farm at Baltic, SD, and it’s been a huge asset.  It has two tanks that you can custom blend the products out with by adjusting each slide – nothing too fancy, but it works.  This is also quite portable.  In fact, one like that pictured below is currently available from a local dealer. mobilefertmixsys Contact number for this is 605-428-5494.

811 One Call

We talk a lot about when to tile and how to tile, but we also want you to remember to be careful. Calling 8-1-1 is just as important when installing tile in fields as it is digging holes in your yard, no one wants to hit any underground electric, fiber-optic or especially gas lines. So be safe and ‘Call Before You Dig’. Give me a call at 1-800-274-3389 if you have any questions. Click here to send Mike an e-mail.   [table “1” not found /]

Tiling In-Crop

Now is a great time to do some tiling in-crop while crop damage would minimal. Just remember future yield increases usually outweigh the small, if any, yield loss of in-crop tiling.
