NOTICE Coronavirus Update:
Due to the State of MN shelter in place decision, West-Con will be further expanding our social distancing practices.  Effective 3/26/20 all West-Con offices will be completely closed to all foot traffic.  We will move all customer and vendor communication to phone, text or email transmissions.

Agriculture and business units like West-Con are designated as an essential industry.  West-Con will provide the services that our customers depend on.  However, the way we do that must evolve until we can see the other side of this pandemic.  We want to protect our valued customers, staff and business associates as we proceed during the next few weeks.  We would ask that as you come to pick up things like seed and chemical you call ahead so your orders can be prepared and loaded as quickly and efficiently as possible while you wait in your truck.  Grain scale tickets will be delivered the day following unload.

You should be able to contact us through our phone system and email.  Should you not have an email address just give us a call and we can share any information you need.  We greatly appreciate everyone's patience as we navigate the next few weeks.  Things are changing very quickly and we encourage you to contact us with all questions.  Springtime is a time of new beginnings and let's count on things improving as we all do our part to protect our friends and families.

AGRONOMY UPDATE

PP Acres and Fallow Syndrome

What is Fallow Syndrome? Fallow Syndrome occurs when we have a population reduction of Mycorrhizae fungi due to no plants growing on that field. These fungi are very beneficial to our crops ability to take up and use phosphorus. Phosphorus deficiency symptoms include small corn plants turning purple, being short, weak, and having uneven stand.

On 2019 PP acres that didn’t get a cover crop put on, we recommend using starter fertilizer with zinc in furrow.

Recommendation:

            Corn Option 1:

                  3 gallons per acre of 10-34-0 and 2 gallons per acre of Riser

            Corn Option 2:

                  5 gallons per acre of 10-34-0 and 1-2 quarts per acre of Zinc

            Soybeans: Inoculate your soybeans to stimulate the Rhizobia bacterium for              good root nodulation, which improves the nitrogen fixation in soybeans.

 

Stay safe and contact your West-Con Sales Agronomist with any questions.
