Harvest season is now underway in Northwest Ohio, and as expected with the extremely tall corn this year, there is a good deal of fodder remaining after the combine rolls through the fields. With the trend to better stalk health and strength in plant genetics, we now have the added challenge in reduced tillage situations with stalks that do not break down after harvest as readily. Stalk Digester is a product now offered by Widmer & Associates which is a formulation that enhances the natural breakdown of stalks by feeding the bacteria and microbes that are key in the decomposition of the plant matter and creating more beneficial organic matter in our soil.
We have multiple years of field trials with this product and been very pleased with the results. Now is the time to try it on your acres.
