EVERYTHING is GROWING! We don't want EVERYTHING GROWING!

Spraying crop is the second most important operation after planting. Weeds grow fast and quickly overtake crops greatly reducing yield and creating a mess for harvest. Thanks to advancements in herbicide we can selectively remove weeds from our crops without damage. Moving PEAS, moving manure, moving chemical!

  • Cant believe DeWalt or Milwaukee doesn't send them a grease gun. Also if the gun had a flow meter saying xx CC's of grease has been injected that'd be handy I just try to count

  • That semi water trailer you have couldn't you rig up a float system and park it by the shack and let it fill while you're out spraying Nick. I had a float deal that I got from the local hardware store and mounted it to the stock tank and hooked it up to the garden hose of the house, this way you don't have to stop and you don't have to worry about it running over. Nick do you have button weeds in Montana. Our main weeds in Our corn and soybeans are sunflowers and button weeds and gypsum weed,and wild pot grows in the ditches.

Have you put together a brochure on it at all? I would think you could get Scott's wife to put something together with her artistic skills. I wish I could get your t shirts in a 6x also a cowfaratt one. I think I would of loved one of those seats in my Peterbilt. As they say Ain't no feeling like Peter mobiling !

  • Nick I will have to agree with you, one of my favorite things to do on the farm is spraying also. I like it all, but just something about figuring the rates and chemicals is just satisfying. Oh yeah and the chemical smell.....lol

  • 3:53 That one weed you plucked out right there can be eaten. Just grab enough of them, remove the roots, and wash the leaves, then toss them in with your salad, though they do add bitterness that should be offset by a creamy Ranch or Caesar dressing. They're also sold as "Field Greens".

  • If covid doesn't affect your market then this year could be big enough to pay off the new tanks maybe?? I mean they would be scattered all over the farm if they were cheap right. Dad and dog doing the trucking together. Dogs know who need them the most and a long day for dad in a truck is kinda like a say seventeen hundred acre day for Nick i would surmise and it gets tougher every year that we put in. Good luck in Montana from Alaska

Also our newest F-350 has the air conditioned seat and after working in the Texas heat it is nice to have that seat. Swamp butt is a thing we deal with here and it sure does help with that. Lol!

    • Right now roundup is kinda a dead chemical in cotton due to the fact that we have had some resistance build up to round up. We are using glufosinate (Liberty) which is a contact killer so you have to make sure every part of the plant gets covered or you wind up with weeds that are almost impossible to get rid of. That’s why we like to run the large water rates.

I miss farming and am amazed how far technology has reached into farming. I totally enjoy seeing all aspects of new farming. Just with less comedic banter. I am fascinated by the "Big Bud's" and hope you can work a deal on that one in California as i feel Welker Farms does real justice to such a historic Tractor. Keep working on your presentations and I will remain a loyal viewer.
