Ladies and Gentlemen,
Mike here to give you a quick lowdown on what Orthman is doing to be “in the lead” to offer training, suggestions, time to learn in regards to Precision Tillage and placing fertilizers for the crop season of 2019. During the week of December 11-13th, in three different locations in east Central Nebraska, we stood up and discussed and answered questions on numerous subjects regarding Strip-Till System Thinking. Those were; where is the premium place to put P&K? Why there? What other products are smart moves to put in the ground with the Strip-Till approach prior to planting? Is it okay to place a good portion of the Nitrogen up front? Why not? How about micros? The ideas of later applied N, S, K late in the season and what those products can and do accomplish later in the season. And so on…
We at Orthman Manufacturing are not satisfied with lets do “farming” like we did in the 80’s and 90’s, we are striving to be better for you and with you in this adventure of growing row crops.
I would hope you are thinking more about nutrient management more and more these days. If these kinds of sessions that you and neighbors are asking about and would like something proactive beyond its all about N; give me a call or you regional sales managers for Orthman as noted on our CONTACT tab on this website.
