8 Ways To Improve Corn Crop Yields
Following 8 Ways To Improve Corn Crop Yields
1Practice Seasonal Soil Rotation
Planting an alternating crop helps to diversify the demands on your soil. This results in crops that not only yield more but continually produce year in and year out.
2.Know The Yield Potential
It is not just enough to plant your seeds and hope for the best, you should always be sure to understand your field’s growth potential. Understanding the kind of crops you’re planting, and the kinds of seeds you are using is important when assessing yield potential.
3. Always Scout Your Fields
This will give you a chance to assess soil conditions, notice any weeds cropping up, and check that your crops are growing healthily. There is a lot you can miss when you are passing by your crops at high speeds, so hitting the ground and examining your crops is an important step towards a stronger crop yield.
Cultivating your soil with fertilizers is an important part of maintaining optimal soil conditions for crops on your farmland. Fertilizing your corn crop at the time of seeding can help provide the seeds with essential nutrients like potassium, phosphorous, and calcium. The root-zone at the base of your crops is the most important area to facilitate growth so your corn crop can thrive and produce an impressive yield.
5.Test Your Soil
Soil testing should be on your to-do list right from the get-go because your soil and its needs will directly influence the growth of your crops. Examining the phosphorus, potassium, and fertilization levels will give you insight into how to handle your crops. It will also let you know when proper soil conditions are forming, such as the optimal density and right amount of nutrients, so you are ready to start planting.
6.Weed Early and Often
Weeds are not just the enemy of front lawns and golf courses, they can also compromise your farmland. Weeds are invasive and siphon nutrients away from the crops you are trying to grow. Weeds always need to be dealt with as early and often as possible. Scouting your fields gives you the opportunity to see if any weeds are cropping up — and putting a stop to them before the problem can get out of hand.
7.Plant Early, Plant Effectively
Choosing the right time to plant is often the most important part of planting. There are tests you can perform on your soil to see if it is ready for planting.
8.Ensure Proper Water Drainage
Water management is essential to crop survival and maximizing your corn’s yield potential. It’s important to ensure your crop is getting enough water, but also that they aren’t being over-watered. Developing a proper drainage system in your crops can help prevent waterlogging and salinization in your soil, both of which can stifle growth and production.
