Planter Places Two Hybrids in Field

Planter Places Two Hybrids in Field | beautyful | Scoop.it

From a distance, the Kinze planter looked no different from any others as it chattered across a field Feb. 21 in Moody, Texas. But "under the hood," this Kinze planter had two seed meters for each row and was placing two hybrids in different areas of the field, depending on what a predetermined digital map dictated.

 

Welcome to the world of concept multi-hybrid planters. This one, which was on its inaugural public run, was the result of a collaboration of Beck's Hybrid's, Kinze Manufacturing and Raven Industries.

The stars seem to be aligning for multi-hybrid planting technology, which promises a bump in yields along with a reduction in seed costs. Electric drives, improved yield maps and specialized hybrids and varieties have made the concept possible.

Both Kinze and Precision Planting announced at the winter farm shows that they have been working on planting systems that can plant two hybrids in the same field pass, putting Hybrid A in one area and Hybrid B in another. The idea would be to use a racehorse variety in the high-producing areas of a field and another -- less expensive -- hybrid in areas with less yield potential. Yield history and agronomic data could help select hybrids that would actually do better in low-yielding areas.

The planter systems would work for corn hybrids as well as soybean varieties.

"Until now, they [growers] had to kind of take an average and use a hybrid that worked kind of OK for most of that field," said Luc van Herle, global director of sales and service for Kinze. "By having a planter that plants two hybrids, you now don't have to choose one hybrid; you can choose two."

That can be especially advantageous to growers with lots of field variation.

THE CONCEPT

The multi-hybrid concept can pay benefits even if a grower does not know why some areas of his field produce less. All he has to know is that planting an expensive hybrid in a weak area is not going to produce big yields or pay dividends. He could choose almost any less expensive hybrid for those areas and come out ahead. But if he does isolate factors causing low yield and finds a hybrid that produces well in those conditions, he gets a double bonus.

Seed companies have long tweaked their products to make the most of problem conditions. By now their catalogues are so extensive they can match specific hybrids to many specific soil conditions and expect to improve yields.

For multiple hybrids to work best, "you have to have an in depth knowledge of genetics and where hybrids perform best," said Douglas Prairie, Raven product manager for applied technology.

His company started working on a multi-hybrid planter in 2012 when South Dakota State University Extension asked for help with a test plot project to investigate -- among other things -- multi-hybrid plantings. Prairie and other Raven engineers decided the concept had merit and dove in. By 2013, they had produced a concept multi-hybrid planter that they displayed at fall farm shows.

Raven during the same time period teamed with Kinze to provide software and support for a concept planter that will hit the fields this spring for testing. "It's just a dream to have it happen so fast. It's nice to see them [Kinze] being so aggressive with the hardware," Prairie said.

Beck's Hybrids provided research and the agronomic underpinnings for Raven's and Kinze's multi-hybrid work.

Kinze last year introduced electric drives on its 4900 planter with 4000 Series row meters. "Once we had electric drives, it made the transition [to multi-hybrid planting] relatively seamless for us," van Herle said.

 

His company's engineers mounted two meters almost in line so that the row units on the multi-hybrid planters are no wider than conventional row units. The electric drives -- unlike hydraulic drives -- can achieve near-instantaneous shut off, van Herle said. As a result, seeds in the same row -- separated only by normal spacing -- could be different hybrids. The 4900 planters have two bulk tanks, which feed to each meter.

"The [multi-hybrid] concept takes a little to explain, but the technology is nifty, it's cool," van Herle said.

Whether the cool technology pays off for individual farmers will depend in part on how much variation they have in their fields. In any case, the decision to buy a planting system with two meters for each row will require good yield maps and much thought. Prices have not yet been released for either the Kinze or Precision Planting systems. Neither company has set a release date for the new technologies.

Bidding Farewell to the 747

Bidding Farewell to the 747 | beautyful | Scoop.it

All Nippon Airways will retire its last two passenger-carrying Boeing 747s next month, ending an era in which the American-made jumbo jet was a frequent presence in Japanese skies, working both the international and domestic routes of ANA and Japan Airlines.

In the 1970s, ANA and JAL were early purchasers of the revolutionary airplane, and they remained loyal to it and to Boeing, which even produced a special high-density, 560-seat, short-haul version of the 747 just for them.

Porc du Québec: enfin à armes égales avec les États-Unis

Porc du Québec: enfin à armes égales avec les États-Unis | beautyful | Scoop.it

«La Corée est un marché à forte valeur ajoutée pour nous. Les États-Unis nous ont damé le pion. Parce qu'ils bénéficient d'un traitement préférentiel, nous sommes moins concurrentiels qu'eux, mais nous avons espoir de regagner le marché. Tout ce qui peut nous donner accès à de nouveaux marchés est accueilli positivement puisque nous exportons 71% de notre production», a commenté la porte-parole Gaëlle Leruste, précisant que des représentations avaient été faites auprès du gouvernement fédéral «pour une conclusion rapide» des discussions.

La représentante de l'association rappelle toutefois que ce n'est pas demain la veille que nos coupes de viande prendront abondamment la route de la Corée du Sud. En Europe, les exportations ne commenceront pas avant «7 ou 8 ans», affirme-t-elle, malgré l'annonce l'automne dernier d'une entente de principe avec l'Union européenne.

Cap vers l'Asie

Cela dit, l'Asie est le «meilleur marché» du monde pour les éleveurs québécois, étant donné qu'on y consomme des coupes considérées comme «haut de gamme», notent Les Éleveurs de porcs du Québec.

«L'Asie, c'est l'avenir de l'industrie porcine québécoise, renchérit Richard Vigneault, directeur des communications d'Olymel, qui possède des bureaux à Séoul et à Tokyo. S'il y a un accord avec la Corée, c'est évident qu'on va s'en réjouir. Depuis deux ans, on est en train de perdre ce marché complètement à cause de l'entente avec les États-Unis.»

En 2012, première année de l'entrée en vigueur de l'accord entre les États-Unis et la Corée, les exportations canadiennes vers ce pays ont chuté de 30%, ce qui représente une perte de 1,5 milliard de dollars.

Les Éleveurs de porcs du Québec représentent les intérêts de 3496 éleveurs.
