Managing 2015 Production Costs with The Helena Acre™
Fall is the time of year when we all look forward to harvesting the crop we have worked so hard to produce. It is also the time of year when we need to start planning for next years’ crop. A few years ago, Helena introduced The Helena Acre to help customers achieve efficient crop production. The Helena Acre encompasses the very best of Helena’s motto, People…Products…Knowledge…®
When considering your plans for next year, start with the right “People.” Your Helena representative can explain how the components of The Helena Acre can help you produce your crops in the most efficient manner possible.
Your Helena representative can help you select the best “Products” in The Helena Acre portfolio to fit your operation. For instance, our CoRoN® line of foliar products can enhance or even replace soil-applied fertility. CoRoN has been used successfully in many parts of the country to efficiently supply nitrogen, potassium, boron and many other nutrients, while lowering the growers’ dependence on soil-applied nutrients and their volatile costs.
The Helena Acre can give you “Knowledge” through the AGRIntelligence® program. This data management platform can assist with efficient placement of nutrients, using HyGround® soil management services. As part of HyGround, we recommend ASK® fertilizer blends to provide balanced nutrition at optimal rates. Our unique ASK blends also utilize Hydra-Hume® and/or MicroMerge® for efficient nutrient uptake. Analyze yield data this fall with AGRIntelligence TruYield® services to determine seed variety performance and seed selection and placement for the 2015 cropping season. HyGround and TruYield are integral parts of our SeedStrong® variable rate seeding recommendations. It is important to collect the fertility and yield data to utilize that recommendation next spring.
Contact your Helena representative to design a Helena Acre program specific to your needs.
