Sunflower, the leading tillage line from AGCO unveils the 1436 series disc harrow. The 1436 touts a weight per ground-engaging blade, along with an aggressive 20-degree overlapping front-disc angle and full-concavity disc blades to handle heavy residue and turn it back to the microbial zone of the soil for quick decomposition. The 1436 offers producers optional blade spacing and three finishing-reel choices. Models of the 1436 series, from 21 to 36 feet, feature thicker wall tubing for a stronger and heavier frame. The 1436 offers an optional dual cab-controlled spring-cushioned hydraulic fore-and-aft adjustment, as well as a mechanical adjustment standard.

Stubble can be part of profit mix
Stubble is most commonly associated with grain crops and is referred to as the crop debris leftover in the fields post-harvest. The tops of crops like corn, wheat, barley and rye are harvested for grain and the leftover stalks, typically ranging between 6 to 14 inches high, are left to decay in the field. The leftover debris, or stubble, must be dealt with in order to reduce the places for pathogens to survive over winter and clear the ground for future planting.
Justin, Texas-based Bio S.I. Technology’s SD 25 stubble digester naturally breaks the stubble down recycling valuable nutrients back into the soil. SD 25 also builds the humus fraction of the soil by breaking down the organic matter into humus which holds water and nutrients in the rhizosphere. This may reduce input cost for most farmers. Stubble can play host to a multitude of harmful pathogens and diseases. Rather than old labor-intensive techniques, farmers can improve soil tilth and convert leftover stubble to valuable nutrients with the help of “stubble digesters.” The SD 25 stubble digester accelerates the rate of decomposition using a proprietary mixture of cellulose digesting microbes and fungi. It also contains a broad range of other naturally occurring soil microbes to improve activity as well as diversity, and humic acid as an added source of carbon to fuel beneficial microbial activity.
Digested stubble also unlocks and releases usable nitrogen and phosphate back into the soil, which can be more valuable than most farmers realize. For every 1 to 2 tons of stubble that is digested, growers will save about $175 an acre in recovered fertilizer costs. These substantial savings in input costs and man hours will more than cover the costs of SD 25’s application and significantly improve any farm’s bottom line.

Seed company adding to high-performing line
Farmers can look forward to maximizing yield potential in 2015 with the most advanced lineup of Asgrow and DEKALB products available from Monsanto, of St. Louis. The products are the latest high-performing group to come to market from the brand’s breeding program.
The Asgrow brand’s lineup of Rock Star products features the latest soybean trait technology, Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield. These soybeans are developed and tested in a network of breeding stations. A package of defensive, maturity and standability traits, as well as other characteristics, are designed to mitigate adverse growing conditions.
The DEKALB brand’s Next Class lineup will include nearly 40 top products. The products combine biotechnology, global germplasm and agronomics to offer farmers products with not only the best yield potential, but also better crop protection and improved plant health with greater resistance from diseases and environmental stressors.
Through the breeding program, new products are created by tapping an expansive foundation of germplasm that pulls genetics from more than 30 countries. Breeders are then able to work with the best genetic ingredients and diversity possible in an effort to provide top products and solutions to the farmer.
