I had the pleasure of participating in an agricultural conference called “FarmSmart” held at the University of Guelph.  I was in a discussion panel with two of my peers to discuss our individual fertilizer strategies and have the room ask us questions about our methods.

I had some really good questions from the crowd that revolved around compaction.  

The questions were:

  1. What Tire pressure are we running our planter tires? 
  2. Are you concerned about compaction or deep compaction? 

I’m going to take some time in the next couple of days to compose some information on how we deal with this problem in our fields and see if i can give these gentleman a complete answer to their questions.

In the meantime due to popular demand i am posting slides from my powerpoint presentation on our fertilizer application strategy.
