You’re looking at a Beck’s hybrid corn field planted early in Clinton County, Indiana — a region that’s often too wet at planting time and prone to dry weeks through the summer. This season had its stresses, but this corn was seed-treated with endophyte stress-tolerating microbes produced by Adaptive Symbiotic Technologies called BioEnsure (a fungus) and BioTango (an array of bacteria.) It also had the nutritional benefits of Spraytec’s Fulltec Cube product for mineral nutrition.
September 3, 2021 We received these photos this morning, and immediately noted that many stalks carry two ears. Owner Hal Brown of Windy Lane Farms is a longtime cover-crop advocate, so his soils are alive with a wide range of beneficial food-web organisms.
Hal and son Ty have years of experience learning the benefits of biological farming.
Side note: Hal recently advised us that Germany’s Horsch manufacturing firm will ship him one of their new high-tech field sprayers for use in 2022. This season, Canadian farmers bought more than 20 of these sprayers after seeing a demo model at work there.
