This week in AGvisorPRO

Week of 29/07/2022

Welcome to this week in AGvisorPRO. Our weekly roundup of featured questions, experts, content, updates, announcements, and more.

Top Question of the Week:

This week’s top question comes from a farmer out of South Dakota. Here’s what the farmer asked:

“We are on the cusp of sunflower weevil spraying season. I have never been able to find any good information on the length of residual we can expect for the different classes of insecticides and within the same classes with different active ingredients. Sidenote this also applies to our increasing grasshopper population.”

You can view the three expert answers in the AGvisorPRO app question feed.

The question of insecticide residuals is also the topic of this week’s Agronomists Happy Hour Podcast. AGvisorPRO is a proud partner of the Agronomists Happy Hour podcast and hosts Kyle Okke and Jason Hanson, experts on the AGvisorPRO app. So grab a cold frothy beer and listen on Spotify or the Apple Podcast app

Featured Expert Profile:

The power of AGvisorPRO is our professional network. This week we’re profiling spraying expert Tom Wolf.

With a master’s degree in agronomy, Tom is well versed in intensive cereal management, including factors like background fertilizer, seeding rates, growth regulators, etc. A research program early in his career led him into the niche of spray management, which was fascinating to Tom. Some additional education led Tom to specialize in this area. Since 1989 he’s been backing farmers up when the snow melts and the sprayer comes out of the shed.

Check out this clip of Tom discussing spraying from our fall 2021 spraying webinar. Click here to connect with Tom on AGvisorPRO.
