FEASTT Offers Corn and Soybean Growers New Technologies
Local corn and soybean growers searching for new ways to drive crop yields higher and improve profitability should mark the FEASTT on their calendars – a Fertilizer Efficiency and Strip Tillage Tour being held on August 22.
The FEASTT will demonstrate new tillage, planting, and foliar nutrition technologies – all on field-sized plots in the Drayton area that have been strip tilled and planted with corn and soybeans between strips of wheat stubble and corn stubble.
“Strip tillage is growing in popularity across Ontario as farmers focus more on soil conservation and reduced tillage to minimize compaction, lower their input costs, and improve fertilizer management,” says Ken Brett with Alpine Plant Nutrition, one of the companies hosting the field tour.
New technologies being featured at the FEASTT include:
Five leading agricultural businesses have teamed up to present the FEASTT: Alpine Plant Foods, Clean Field Services Inc., MK Martin Enterprise Inc., Can East Equipment Limited, and Monosem.
Morning and afternoon sessions are available – at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. – each with a meal to follow. Admission is $10/person with all proceeds donated to charity. For more information or to register, email Marli at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-265-2268.
