Unlocking Crop Potential with Take Off LS
In the dynamic world of agriculture, maximizing crop yields while maintaining soil health and minimizing environmental impact is a constant challenge. Take Off LS, a plant growth regulator, has emerged as a powerful ally for corn and soybean farmers. This innovative product promotes healthier, more robust plants that ultimately lead to increased productivity.

What is Take Off LS?
Take Off LS is a proprietary blend of plant growth regulators designed to enhance nutrient use efficiency, stimulate root development, and improve overall plant health. It is formulated to be compatible with a range of agricultural practices and can be easily integrated into existing fertilization and crop protection programs.

Benefits of Take Off LS for Corn
  1. Enhanced Nutrient Uptake:
    • Efficient Nitrogen Utilization: Take Off LS helps corn plants make better use of available nitrogen, a critical nutrient for growth. Enhanced nitrogen uptake translates to stronger, healthier plants.
    • Improved Root Development: By stimulating root growth, Take Off LS ensures that corn plants have access to more nutrients and water, essential for their development and resilience.
  2. Increased Photosynthesis:
    • Boosted Chlorophyll Production: The product promotes chlorophyll synthesis, increasing the plant's ability to photosynthesize. This leads to more energy being available for growth and grain production.
    • Greater Biomass Accumulation: Enhanced photosynthesis contributes to greater biomass, which is critical for higher grain yields.
  3. Stress Tolerance:
    • Drought Resistance: With improved root systems and efficient water use, corn plants treated with Take Off LS exhibit better drought tolerance, ensuring stable yields even in less-than-ideal conditions.
    • Disease Resistance: Healthier plants with robust root systems are naturally more resistant to diseases, reducing the need for chemical interventions.
  4. Yield Improvement:
    • Higher Grain Quality and Quantity: The cumulative effect of improved nutrient uptake, photosynthesis, and stress tolerance is a significant increase in both the quality and quantity of the corn yield.

Benefits of Take Off LS for Soybeans
  1. Optimized Nitrogen Fixation:
    • Enhanced Nodulation: Soybeans, being legumes, fix atmospheric nitrogen through nodules on their roots. Take Off LS enhances nodulation, leading to better nitrogen fixation and healthier plants.
    • Improved Symbiotic Relationship: The product supports the symbiotic relationship between soybeans and nitrogen-fixing bacteria, boosting overall plant health.
  2. Stronger Root Systems:
    • Increased Root Biomass: Similar to its effects on corn, Take Off LS stimulates root growth in soybeans, improving nutrient and water uptake.
    • Greater Stability: A stronger root system provides better anchorage and resilience against environmental stresses.
  3. Enhanced Photosynthetic Efficiency:
    • Increased Chlorophyll Content: Take Off LS boosts chlorophyll levels, enhancing the plant’s photosynthetic capacity and overall vigor.
    • More Energy for Growth: With more efficient photosynthesis, soybeans can allocate more energy towards growth and pod development.
  4. Yield and Quality Improvement:
    • Higher Pod Count and Seed Weight: Enhanced nutrient uptake and photosynthesis result in more pods per plant and heavier seeds, leading to increased yield.
    • Improved Oil and Protein Content: Healthier plants produce seeds with better nutritional profiles, benefiting both farmers and consumers.
Sustainable Farming with Take Off LS
Beyond the immediate benefits to corn and soybean crops, Take Off LS contributes to sustainable farming practices. By improving nutrient use efficiency, it reduces the need for excessive fertilization, minimizing environmental runoff and protecting water quality.

Take Off LS is a game-changer for corn and soybean farmers, offering a suite of benefits that enhance plant health, improve yields, and support sustainable agriculture. By optimizing nutrient uptake, boosting photosynthesis, and enhancing stress tolerance, Take Off LS helps farmers unlock the full potential of their crops. As we strive for more efficient and sustainable farming practices, products like Take Off LS will be at the forefront of agricultural innovation, ensuring a bountiful harvest today and for future generations.

Over the last two weeks, our run of moisture has continued in Eastern Iowa. Corn postemergence applications are nearing the end as we approach the start of postemergence soybean applications. Corn topdress urea applications are in full force as the early planted corn approaches V8-V9. There have been quite a few fields of corn showing sulfur deficiency, but overall, our corn crop should be classified as good/excellent. There have been pockets here and there of hail damage where growers did need to replant. Looking at the extended forecast, we should expect some excellent growing conditions for our corn and soybeans in the coming weeks.

With 99% of planting completed post herbicide applications have started. While the wet weather has held sprayers off for the time being, it looks like we will get a window in the next week to make most of those applications. Corn has been growing rapidly as we are roughly 100 GDUs ahead of average since April 15th. Pre herbicides should be active with the rain we’ve received but don’t let the lack of weeds prevent you from making that post herbicide application. Continue scouting for early season disease pressure as we continue to have ideal conditions for disease growth.

Eastern Iowa has been able to get the majority of the crop in the ground in between rain showers. Planting progress is sitting roughly 90% on corn and 60%-70% on soybeans. Early planted corn emerged in 7-10 days thanks to warm temps and ample moisture. One thing to watch this spring is insects and disease pressure being higher than usual due to the mild winter. We have seen that firsthand in our alfalfa crop locally with the alfalfa weevil causing early season damage before the first cutting. Make sure to scout your hay crop if you haven’t and contact your local rep if a insecticide application is needed.
