The autumn scan of grain and rapeseed

Blog - The autumn scan of grain and rapeseed | 04.10.2019
In the "autumn scan", farmers use their YARA N-Sensor® to measure the current N uptake of winter rape stocks and can thus calculate spreading maps for the first N dosage in the following spring. This ensures optimum fertilization of the plants. Current research results show that this procedure also leads to positive effects in winter wheat. Read more

Yield potential maps a second time - Why, agronomically, they make no sense at all

Blog - Yield potential maps a second time - Why, agronomically, they make no sense at all | 19.12.2018
Yield potential maps and yield targets are mostly used to measure the optimal nitrogen fertilization. With this approach, however, we are unfortunately on the wrong track. The attempt is to calculate the N fertilizer required by balancing plant growth, N consumption and N fertilizer supplied as in a static black box. However, nature is not that simple... Read more

Optimization of N-fertilization to winter wheat with the help of digital tools

Blog - Optimization of N-fertilization to winter wheat with the help of digital tools | 14.12.2018
How can nitrogen fertilization to winter wheat be optimized with the help of digital tools? Dr. Martin Schneider addressed this question in his presentation at the 2018 Arable Farming Conference in Bernburg. In the presentation, the focus will be on the application of our digital N-fertilization method in the entire vegetation process. Read more

As an agricultural service provider, Eberhard Tanzberger has been offering his customers sub-area-specific basic and nitrogen fertilization for 18 years. He is supported by Agricon. The services are based on soil samples, the Yara N-Sensor® and the cloud-based data management software agriPORT. Read more

The fall scan is in full swing

Blog - The fall scan is in full swing | 14.11.2018
This year some farmers may think that an autumn scan is not worthwhile for the poorly established stocks. On the basis of the first data from this autumn we cannot confirm this assumption. The N-iamges of the stands are sometimes very high and the variability within the fields is immense! Read more

Workshop: "Digital plant production" - orientation and training for farmers

Blog - Workshop: "Digital plant production" - orientation and training for farmers | 06.11.2018
Over 200 farmers took part in the "Digital Plant Production" task force last year. Over the next eleven weeks, Agricon employees will once again meet personally with farm managers and agronomists to discuss rule-based plant production. The series of events will take place at a total of 19 locations throughout Germany. Read more
