Residue Management After Harvest

Education

Our work is not done after harvest season. While it may not be time to plant, it is time to condition our soil and prepare it for next year’s crop. Healthy soil supports plant growth, increases fertilizer productivity, controls plant pests and regulates drainage. It is the difference between a successful and unsuccesful season. One of the most important aspects of managing soil health is residue management after harvest.There are several benefits to residue management. It contributes to the organic matter, reduces soil erosion and conserves soil moisture. Organic matter is held closer to the soil surface resulting in a more sound soil structure. It also serves as a cost-effective option compared to tilling, due to fuel savings, less machinery and long-term soil health benefits. This method ensures you are getting the most out of your crop residue and soil.

To assist with residue being efficiently broken down and nutrients absorbed into the soil, an effective stubble digester should be applied to the soil. This can aid in restoring soil biomass, increasing nitrogen availability, and reducing the chance of soil borne diseases. Our product, HumaPak, is an 8-0-0 humic acid compound that functions as an effective stubble digester for residue management, soil conditionioner and even a foliar nutritional product as you move into growing season. This AgXplore product enhances soil biology, adds organic matter to deficient soils and more, making it an essential product as you manage your after-harvest residue.
