The Rest of the Story...
Do you know what makes a plant healthy? We often focus on the mineral portion of the plant in order to eliminate nutritional deficiencies. These minerals, however, are only a very small portion of what makes up a healthy plant. How many people have ever told you your plant or soil might have a deficiency in carbon? Or, what about oxygen? Why does this matter you might ask? It matters because a plant's dry matter is how we get paid and 97% of a plant's dry matter is composed of only four key elements. If you want to boost your yield and test weight, look to increase your crops dry matter. It truly is what matters most.

Planting When Wet May Increase
Soil Compaction

Late spring planting and working the field when the soil is wet can result in soil compaction. Proper soil management and tillage practices are key to reducing soil compaction caused by wet planting conditions. The following video explains what to look for and which tillage practice to follow when planting in wet soil conditions. 
Correct Mid-Season Compaction with GSR Dormant Calcium 
Due to the wet spring planting conditions, mid-season soil compaction will be a major issue this growing season. Applying GSR Dormant Calcium along with Bio-5 Extract mid-season has proven effective at reducing soil compaction mid-season. Please contact the Soil Works team for specific instructions and if your operation is suitable for this application.
