T band

we are setup with smart boxes and are running insecticide in furrow.  Thought about changing to a T-band.  Where can I find the T-band dispenser?  I've googled it several different ways but have only found the studies but never the product/tube/dispenser.  Help if you can.See More

"At least $10,000 1700 just sold in Calhoun County to one buyer for around that price.  And that buyer has money enough to buy 2000 to 3000 acres more cash."

land prices

There is 200 acres for sale a mile from where I live in rolling hills Carroll county.  It was the banker's estate, children are settling it-extremely nice people.  Given the recent outlooks in marketing nobody is saying the prices are going to bubble back up, in fact the majority are calling for $4.00 price range(corn) long term as in years.  Knowing what assume means, what price do you think it will bring?  Does deep pockets mean anything anymore?  If you were bidding would you look at it…See More

1994 rogator 664

I'm running into an intermittent problem with our rogator sprayer.  I will lose product pump pressure occasionally and after playing with the hydrostat-back and forward it comes back.  Twice it came back and was trying to blow the filter apart with too much pressure -150 psi.  It would quit when I turned the switch off and clean the rubber on the fitting and turn it back on.  I would say it shut off on its own more if I was going downhill faster than set speed.  We put new parts in the…See More

rain

Posted on May 31, 2012 at 9:03pm 3 Comments

Got missed by the rain again.  It evaporates or goes around us every time.  In three weeks since we planted we have gotten a 1/4 inch.  the corn rolled up this weekend with the heat and the sidehills are starting to die in places.  The beans are barely emerged and look like they need a drink.  I give it another week or two of high heat and we'll be out for the season.

land prices Ugh!

A neighbors 160 acres are up for sale.  The lawyer sent out a newsletter stating the starting bid is set at $10,000.  That blows me out of the water before I even get my big toe wet. So disappointed.
