  1. 1. Where the Rubber Hits the Road: An Industry Perspective Dean J. Collamer, MS, CPAg, CCA GROWMARK FS SWCS July 29, 2019 Pittsburgh, PA
  2. 2. Engaging Farmers in Nutrient Stewardship • Field Testing & Evaluation – evidence based • On Farm Discovery Field Trials (Hershey and other) • Leading the Conversation in Nutrient Stewardship • Embracing 4R Nutrient Stewardship Strategy within GFS • Training Crop Specialists • Communicating to Growers (Winter Meetings, Trade Shows & Other Events) • Implementing Product & Practice throughout the year • Participating in PA 4R Alliance & MidAtlantic 4R Nutrient Stewardship Assoc.
  3. 3. Nutrient Stewardship Products & Practices Marketed, Delivered and Used by Farmers • Crop planning • Precision ag services • Field mapping • EC mapping • Soil testing (grids or zones) • Variable rate application • Aerial or satellite imagery • Yield map analysis • Precision planting equipment • Plant Nutrients • Lime • Liquid & dry starters • Custom blending to soil test • Enhanced efficiency fertilizers • Sidedressing and Custom application services • Foliar nutrients • Biologicals and Other • Humic acid • Biologicals – plant growth, crop protection • Microbial combinations – soil health • Crop Monitoring • Tissue & Forage Quality Testing • Field Scouting • Cover Crop Seed • Single species • Custom & prepackaged multi-species mixes
  4. 4. Field Testing and Communicating Latest 4R Nutrient Stewardship Results
  5. 5. Nutrient Management Practices & Conservation Practices – Balancing Act Compatible • Setback maps for nutrient or applications – manure or commercial fertilizer • Planting cover crops to utilize nutrients and decrease soil erosion • Products & practices that promote soil health • Field profitability maps to target conservation zones Not so Compatible • Shallow injecting manure on no- till acres • Baling and removing corn stalks on no-till acres • Spreading manure when soil is too wet – compaction/< water infiltration/> erosion • Manure storage capacity < ideal to match crop needs
  6. 6. Agronomic Efficiency Yield Increase/Unit of Plant Food Applied Starter Fertilizer Placement Agronomic Efficiency for Phosphorus Hershey, PA 2012 Method Yield Increase Over No Starter (lbs/A) P Applied (lbs P2O5/A) AE Surface Broadcast 437 60 7.3 2x2 Band 677 60 11.3 Pop-up (In Furrow) 515 12 42.9 AE = (Y-Y0)/F Improved Agronomic Efficiency with 2x2 and Pop-Up Placed Starters
  7. 7. Starter Fertilizer Additive with Biological (Ethos XB) • Capture LFR Insecticide + Biological fungicide • Easy to use, Liquid Fertilizer Ready 145.9 147.1 162.5 100.0 110.0 120.0 130.0 140.0 150.0 160.0 170.0 9-18-3 FS 9-18-3 FS + Capture LFR 9-18-3 FS + Ethos XB Capture LFR and Ethos XB +16.6 bu/A! Insecticide & Biological fungicide Generated Higher Yield without Added Nutrients bu/A
  8. 8. Agribusiness Engages Growers with 4R Nutrient Stewardship • 4R Focus with Farmers in Products and Practices • Approach to Crop Nutrients and Overall Crop Management • Integration with Equipment & Technology Adoption • Use Source, Rate, Time and Place specifics when implementing BMPs • Field Tested and Proven • Nutrients + Biologicals + Biostimulants • Yield, Economic Return (Grower) • Environment/Social (Society) • Cope with Nutrient Management & Conservation Conflicts

Editor's Notes

  • Y = Crop Yield with Starter Fertilizer Applied
    Y0= Crop Yield with No Starter Fertilizer
    F = The Amount of Starter Fertilizer Applied (lbs P2O5/A)
