One of the hottest weeks of the summer and of course it’s Farm Progress Show. Even with the high temperatures the show, this year in Decatur, Illinois, was a success for attendees, exhibitors and everyone who participated in this year’s event.

Crop Progress in Kansas

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

The tour of grower visits continue as the StollerUSA crew headed to Western Kansas this week to visit with another innovative farmer near Montezuma. Josh Koehn runs 8,000 acres of corn, wheat and milo each year. Facing hot, dry weather seems to be the pattern over the last few years in Kansas. Combine that with high winds and the stage is set for more plant stress than most can handle.

After hearing a StollerUSA progressive grower speak two years ago about Bio-Forge®, Josh went to his dealer asking for help getting a StollerUSA program on his acres. Farming irrigated and dryland crops he was anxious to try something new in order to help minimize stress on his crops each summer.

In 2012 Josh set a record on his operation and won a National Corn Growers Association state contest with 306 bu/acre corn. This was also the first year he used Bio-Forge. In 2013 as we went to visit him the question arose about what he’s aiming for this year.

His reply, “350 bu/acre. I put Bio-Forge on every acre.”

It’s clear he’s setting his sights high, but with success like he’s having it’s a no brainer. Bio-Forge, X-Cyte and Sugar Mover have all been applied to his crops offering season long relief from high temperatures and something unfamiliar cold, wet springs. Usually little rain per season is an issue, but now it seems Western Kansas has had timely rain and crops are looking even better.

Tune in as Josh begins to harvest next month we’ll post yield results.
