Rainy Day Newsletter
Attached is more information on Stalk Rots.
Good Afternoon, here at Shea AG we would like to inform you on a few of are fall products. The first product is the 5000 Stalk Devastator. As the Devastator rolls through the field, it knocks down stalks and crimps them, protecting equipment tires. It also allows for faster decomposition and microbial breakdown of residue. The second product we would like to also inform you on is the 360 Bullet Point. Surprisingly, your ripper is likely leaving 40% of the subsoil undisturbed. Dig and you’ll find berms of untouched soil that can impede root access to moisture and nutrients. We have both of these products in shop, allowing you to take a closer look at them and see how they work. Below you will find a video, images and a few key features on each of the ideas.

The Ontario Yield Tour 2019
This year Shea Ag has sponsored the Ontario Yield Tour put on by Farms.com Risk Management team. Last year we took in the event, it was very informative and well worth the time. This year they have a lot of great speakers and live demonstrations that will be going on. National Corn grower winner Kevin Kalb will be speaking at the event. Kevin farms in Indiana where he was able to achieve 388 bushel/acre without irrigation last year. He farms very similar to Ontario farmers and will be sharing some of his secrets to success!
Along with sponsoring the event allowed us to also be apart of the 2-week yield tour where we can come and do yield checks in your corn and or soybean fields. If that is something you wish to be apart of let us know and we will come out conduct the yield checks. You will also be entered a draw to win various prizes.
Attached is a flyer going into more detail about the event, If you would like to attend let us know and we have can get you signed up.
Thank you again, we appreciate the continued support. If you have anymore questions please feel free to ask away.
