Fertilizer Update by Rob FritzCommodity prices have taken a pretty large drop, and it has led to a stabilization of the fertilizer market. If we continue to see drops in commodity prices, I do expect to see some drops in fertilizer to follow. We are still unable to price any 10-34-0 and have no idea when we will see it priced.

Equipment Tips by Mike Bemboom
Harvest SafetyIt’s been a dry fall, which makes harvesting easier on lots of things, not to mention more fun. However, it can also increase chances of fire. I’ve already heard of at least three combines catching fire this fall. One way you could reduce fire risk from static electricity is to drag a chain from your combine, usually the middle of the rear axle. Also, most combines have a bracket or defined place for a fire extinguisher. If they don’t, portable extinguishers will fit almost anywhere in the cab. Pressurized water canisters are also effective in stopping small fires or hot spots and have less of a mess to clean up after use. Either way, make sure you have a fire extinguisher or water source close by in case of an emergency. Please call me at our Baltic office (1-800-274-3389) if you have any questions.
