Hello everyone I'm Zubair here from mountainous region of Pakistan. Im trying to increase my yields, what is the best way.
Do you plant green? If so, what termination methods/timing do you use? For example, a burndown before planting the cash crop? Roller-crimping after planting? Etc. Thanks!
What is the likelihood that we will see drones spraying commodity value crops like corn and soybeans in the near future? Will this ever be cost effective and efficient enough to replace airplane spraying or even in field sprayers?

Looking at planting triticale with hairy vetch and cow peas for a cover crop next year for a cash crop or corn to be planted late May 2021 using a roller crimper to terminate the cover crop before plant. It’s October 18th, I won’t be able to plant until the 22nd. Night time temps have fluctuated from mid 30s to high 20s no consistency yet. Some nights stay closer to 40. Highs are in the 70s and 80s. Am I too late for any of my covers? Any suggestions on planting rates? Will triticale terminate properly if I follow the method used for Rye, waiting until the entire field is dropping pollen?

Since most university nutrient recommendations were established prior to catalytic converters becoming commonplace, do you feel that sulfur fertilizer is needed in a greater amount than what is being suggested based on older recommendations?
