We at Orthman Manufacturing are happy to announce we have a date for you to come to the Orthman Research Farm near Polk, Nebraska north of State Hwy 66. Please click on the link below in red and see what the timing is for August 26th starting around 1:00pm CDT. However do note… we are asking people to park near the High School in Polk, Nebraska and we will bus to the site east and north of the village of Polk. Reason being there is very little parking on the county road and it would be unsafe. We will transport all who come via good school buses to and back to the cars. Our suggestion on the 26th of August would be to arrive at the school around 12:00 Noon to 12:30pm and meet some neighbors and others as you come to learn about Strip Till and a Smart Precision Based fertility systems approach in irrigated corn.
The link will send you to YouTube to see and hear about the day we have put together. The link is right here, do enjoy and come for a August afternoon to see how Orthman with great partners in John Deere, SureFire Ag, North Forty Seed Company (Pioneer Seeds), and Nutrien all worked together this spring and summer to develop data and a very good corn crop. which we are pleased with. This should be an educational afternoon, some cold non-alcoholic refreshments to keep you all hydrated and thinking straight. It is about 3 minutes in length, please listen and enjoy. https://youtu.be/aiFfFoRQZm8
We look forward to seeing many folks come to hear how roots influence the story of growing corn with a solid seed selection from Pioneer and their Agronomic people, a soil pit with our own soils man, Mike Petersen in a root/soils pit to describe what occurred and what we do with a good fertility program along with John Person with Nutrien of why this program was an aggressive one but very smart. SureFire Ag will be explaining the precision based nutrient delivery system used on the planter and strip till rig – all important to the systems approach. We want all who are feeling good to come. Your brain will be challenged but filled too at the same time. Safe distancing is very possible where we are at. See you there!!
