Loftness, Hector, Minn., has introduced the GrainLogix GBU10 grain bag unloader with an improved drive system and it can remove grain from 10-foot-diameter grain bags. The GBU10 includes a 10-inch-diameter cross auger with a reconfigured drive to ensure various crops are evenly unloaded from the bag. The cross auger transfers grain to the 17-inch discharge auger, which then delivers it to a trailer or grain cart. The unit transfers grain at rates up to 8,500 bushels per hour, helping it to fill a 1,000-bushel trailer in about seven minutes. The GBU10 features a new hydraulically driven gearbox drive. The bag roller contains welded teeth to ensure the bag is held securely, and the ends are capped to prevent the bag from overrunning the roller.

Company extends residual herbicide agreement
MANA, of Raleigh, N.C., extended its collaboration agreement with Monsanto for the inclusion of Cotoran 4L, Direx 4L and Pyrimax 3.2L cotton herbicides under the Roundup Ready PLUS Weed Management Solutions platform through 2016.
In 2014, cotton growers will receive a $2 per acre incentive when using Cotoran 4L, Direx 4L and Pyrimax 3.2L following Roundup Ready PLUS recommendations for glyphosate-resistant and tough-to-control weeds. New to the 2014 MANA/Monsanto partnership will be an expanded geography that includes Texas and Arizona.
The Roundup Ready PLUS platform will continue to provide options for Southeast and Delta cotton farmers.
Specific to resistance management in cotton, experts advise growers to approach every field proactively and use a residual herbicide at the ideal time for peak product performance.
Cotoran 4L, applied pre-emergence, provides economical control of annual grasses and broadleaf weeds, especially glyphosate-resistant Palmer pigweed. It offers up to two and a half weeks of residual activity and can be tank mixed with other herbicides to broaden control.
Direx 4L is the preferred diuron product for Roundup Ready PLUS and one of the best known herbicide performer against glyphosate-resistant Palmer pigweed and marestail (horseweed). Direx 4L can be applied as a pre-plant, pre-emergence or post-directed application from 6-inch cotton to layby. It can deliver up to three and a half weeks of residual activity.
Pyrimax 3.2L is a popular glyphosate-resistance management tool with broad flexibility in application methods and timing, which can be used pre-emergence or post-emergence. Pyrimax 3.2L is proven to control a wide spectrum of weeds including Palmer pigweed, and is the preferred tank mix partner with Cotoran 4L to broaden control on fields showing signs of resistance.
