With numerous challenges over the past several years for producers, we at Mercer Landmark understand the need for a comprehensive risk management solution. We seek to provide our customers with unparalleled service to ensure maximum results.

As hard as it may be to believe, we are nearly halfway through February and about 2 months away from planting season. Before we know it, green grass and the spring rush will be here.

Top-dressing wheat will likely begin in the next few weeks. For 100 bushel wheat we are removing 150lbs/acre of nitrogen and 10 lbs/acre of sulfur. I encourage growers to add a sulfur fertilizer source to help maintain higher yield levels. Plant tissue samples can be taken to assess fertility needs in season as well.

Our Wheat Health Program for 2018 has been released and is available to sign up for. When you sign up for the program there are special deals on Prosaro fungicide and Grizzly Too insecticide. Prosaro is used to protect your wheat from head scab and the flag leaf from diseases. Head Scab will increase DON levels in wheat and reduces yield. The flag leaf is responsible for a large percentage of wheat yield.

Stay safe and talk with your Mercer Landmark Agronomist to get signed up for our Plant Health Program and for all of your other agronomic needs.
