Complete Soil Test Critical to Balance Soils
Dennis Klockenga, ProfitProAG Crop Management Consultant, will discuss what a complete soil test entails. The normal analysis includes N, P, K, OM and pH. In addition, Ca, Mg, S, Na, base saturation, CEC and micronutrients need to be analyzed. Most people understand why N, P, K, pH and OM are important, but why are all of these additional components important? Find out the answer as Dennis shares in-depth information to this question and more.
A well balanced, fertile soil will consistently outperform one that is out of balance. It starts with a complete soil test as well as the right person to interpret it and provide guidance.
HYDROGEN SULFIDE CONTROL
Protect Your Investment Through Modern Microbiology
Hydrogen sulfide, the chemical compound H2S is a colorless gas with the characteristic of foul, rotten eggs. Heavier than air, it is very poisonous, corrosive, flammable and explosive. Hydrogen sulfide in manure pits is the result of bacteria breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. When this toxic gas comes in contact with water, the chemical reactions of hydrogen sulfide and water convert to acid, which is corrosive to surfaces.
Chris Chodur, ProfitProAG Consultant, and Dr. Jim Ladlie, ProfitProAG President, will discuss the many problems encountered with hydrogen sulfide including livestock loss. When a person or animal smells hydrogen sulfide, it’s almost too late. Therefore, prevention is the key. Manure Master Plus™ is effective in controlling H2S and offers many other benefits.
