Re: Cultivating makes you feel like a Farmer

Hey Blacksand, I raise non-GM corn without a premium, but rather the cheaper seed costs.  The coop has a program of Corvus, Atrazine and I forget what else, but it`s guaranteed or they`ll respray for free.  It`s spendy about $35/a but as always with that program, I am happy.   The thing is, since it`s their program I have to buy their high priced chemicals and they apply it over the top after planting with 28% ...well then they have to put on their damned Nutrisphere, $10 extra there, since it can`t be worked in.  But I`m happy, that`s the main thing  Smiley Happy

 

With the beans I cultivated, they really perked up by getting arriated, I don`t always have time to do it, but for all the crap Jim and Ken give me Smiley Happy  I`m convinced it helps the yield and I knock out an escaped weed here and there.   I`ve looked on the web for data of cultivating improving yield but can`t find much other than blog spots claiming a arbitrary "10%" improvement, universities say it`s good, but no tests per sec.  The final "is it NAT approved?" Smiley Happy well many over there are rabid no-tillers and you can`t talk sense to them  Smiley Happy
