Herbicide Tips

Here are some overlooked tips for chemical spraying. 1) You want to read labels thoroughly. Many grass killers require the use of crop oil. Some herbicides need surfactants. Glyphosates you should be using liquid or dry ammonium sulfate with it. 2) Spraying when temperatures are too cold or too hot result in poor herbicide control. Contact herbicides work best when a plant isn't "stressed" and is actively growing. 3) Products like glyphosate shouldn't be sprayed on forages that recently was clipped. It would be better to spray glyphosate and then wait4 or 5 days to clip or til down the dying materials. 4) Nozzle tips matter. You want to have a spray pattern than contains as many tiny liquid

Nutrition and Bio Availability

I am a nutritionist and formulator with over 25 years of experience working with high end animals, farmers and other businesses and nutritionists. I only use the best products and never cut corners. The wildlife world is way behind in the times as far as nutrition. So many companies use low bio available sources of trace minerals in their products and my feeling is that is adds to their profit margins. When one looks at tags on products you will see many use Zinc Oxide instead of Zinc Sulfate or the "time released sources" such as the Zinc Polysaccharides that I use. For example if one compares the zinc sources and levels in my Ultimate Deer Mineral to other common deer minerals on the mark

Know your brassicas

I had a discussion with someone yesterday that planted turnips this past week and It inspired this blog topic. Brassicas vary in maturities from 6 weeks to 20 weeks to reach maturity. Here is a run down on brassicas. Turnips take 60 days to reach maturity and shouldn't be planted until early August. They give moderate nutrition and are a source of winter bulbs. If you plant purple top turnips in May or June, the bulbs will become woody and unpalatable and the forage will be mature and bitter. Rutabaga take 90-100 days to reach maturity and produce bulbs that resemble turnips but are about 1.5 times larger than turnips. They produce more top growth than turnips are are sweeter and more palata
