Let the learning begin: 103 individuals will benefit from the educational experience of AdFarm’s 2010 North Dakota farm crop. The shareholders, from AdFarm offices in Fargo, Grand Forks and Kansas City, purchased 463 shares.
AdFarm again offered the “buy four, get a fifth share free” incentive, which attracted a few new shareholders.
Move over wheat
Last week on the AdFarm N.D. acres, there was volunteer winter wheat growing on the headlands, where it was missed by a pinto bean desication spray pass last fall. Winter wheat is very tough, and these particular stands survived disking and cultivating. The wheat germinated last fall and survived the winter. Farm Partner Fred Lukens controlled the winter wheat with a spray pass of grass killer that he had in the tank for another field operation.
Fertilize, then plant
Fred says: “If we’re lucky (read: weather cooperates), we’ll fertilize the AdFarm field on Thursday or Friday and plant it on Saturday.” He’ll seed this year’s crop: Pioneer 39D97 corn (with Pioneer 39V05 corn as corn borer refuge acres).
As spring work continues to progress throughout ag country, 103 people are tuned in with a vested interest in their 70 acres.
