With its experience in mechanical seed drills, Kuhn North America now offers Premia mounted seed drills. The Premia gives users the possibility of working alone or in combination with a harrow, reducing the number of passes over a field. The Premia has a hopper and an opening for easy filling and cleaning. The flow rate can be checked with the machine on the ground or without being hitched to a tractor through simple and easy-to-access adjustment points. An additional grass box, which also has a wide opening for easy filling, can be added for drilling small seeds. For more information, contact a local dealer or visit www.kuhnnorthamerica.com.
Historically, much of the nation’s environmental calls to action have revolved around the recycling and reuse of materials. These practices have proven to be economically advantageous and environmentally necessary, but what about the byproducts that can be repurposed and get confused for waste? RepurposedMATERIALS is the only company in America whose entire product line consists of items that have value “as is.” For more information, call 303-321-1471 or visit www.repurposedmaterialsinc.com.
Irrigation to this cotton crop was cut off Sept. 5, 2012, with these two photos showing that the field treated with Supramolecular Humic Acids, the active ingredient in Agriculture Grade TerraPro, continued to grow and mature, providing a drought tolerance advantage and a better yield. Both fields are side by side and the photos were taken on the same day in the 1st week of November. The field in the photo to the right was treated at planting with 850 pounds of Supramolecular Humic Acids-Agriculture Grade TerraPro, field on the left was not.

New sugarbeet, sunflower seed and planting resources at growers' fingertips
Leave the calculator at home. Syngenta is providing sugarbeet growers access to a Sugarbeet Planting Guide as part of its newly designed seeds pages, which serve as a resource center for sugarbeet and sunflower seeds, as well as other crops.
The new pages house information specific to seeds, including approved Hilleshog brand varieties per sugarbeet growing region, available Syngenta sunflower hybrids, yield results and links to management tools and products that address challenges during the growing season.
