Dunkerton Co-op is excited to announce the addition of AFD (Automated Fuel Delivery) to our list of services that we offer.
The Automated Fuel Delivery System will help you by improving your cash flow and freeing up your time and resources for other business endeavors. With AFD, your fuel tanks are monitored and automatically refilled so you always have a reliable supply of high quality fuel without having to check tanks and worry about orders. You are billed on a monthly basis only for the fuel that you actually use each month. The price you are billed is based on the monthly average of fuel delivered to your farm direct from the lowest cost terminal. You will gain peace of mind that comes from knowing that you do not have to worry about delays because you run short of fuel. It will also help you in fuel buying because you will not have to worry about buying or contracting fuel at the correct time or price as you will receive the average price for the month but yet you will still have the option of locking in a favorable price if you so choose.
If you would like more information regarding Automated Fuel Delivery, please call the office at (319)822-4291

Be sure to scout your fields!
Japanese beetles are beginning to enter crop fields at high infestation rates, and they can cause a considerable amount of economic damage. These beetles feed on soybean leaves, leaving them skeletonized. The beetles also feed on corn leaves and silk during critical pollination time. The threshold for soybeans is when the field reaches around 30% defoliation before bloom and 20% defoliation after bloom. The threshold for corn is when silks have been clipped to less than one-half inch and pollination is less then 50% complete. It is recommended to use a foliar insecticide once economic thresholds have been met or exceeded. If you notice your fields have a significant amount of damage from Japanese beetle feeding, contact your agronomist right away!
Nitrogen is essential for adequate plant growth, development, and production. Despite nitrogen being one of the most abundunt elements on the planet, nitrogen deficiency is the most common nutritional problem affecting crops worldwide. Applying N at multiple times, including the time of maximum crop uptake, can spread the risk of N loss and crop deficiency, improve profitability by reducing N rates, and benefit the environment. If your fields are in need of an extra dose of nitrogen, contact the agronomy department today to get more information about our nitrate testing, Y-Dropping, and top dress urea services!
