Fertilizer Update by Rob Fritz

Supplies of 28% are still great, and prices have leveled off.  Urea demand is still very high, and prices remain very high.  Twin Cities terminals are suffering intermittent supply shortages, and that should continue through the spring.  Look for very little price drop between now and late July.

What Solar Interference Means for Your Farm Equipment

In the past few weeks, there has been some abnormal solar activity. Solar storms like these have been known to affect GPS signals, which in turn can affect the accuracy of your tractor’s GPS-based guidance and steering. There are websites, like this one http://www.navcomtech.com/Support/Tools/satellitepredictor/main.cfm, that track satellites and can show you how many satellites you should be able to see during the day specific to your location. With the information websites like this provide, you can see the number of satellites available to you during the day and plan your GPS activity around any poor coverage times. 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 /]
