So last week I had the opportunity to travel out to the Treasure Valley. Where's that you ask? OK, I didn't know it either till I got there. But it's the area to the West of Boise, ID. Boise is in the Western side of the state and several rivers converge on the area to form the Snake River, and formed a flat valley. The ground there is very rich and fertile, as long as you have water. The crop diversity there is pretty amazing. It is one of the country's leading suppliers of yellow onions. Onions are mostly fertilized by (gasp) dry fertilizer applied in the fall, but with 32% UAN applied through drip tape.
This grower wisely applied Pro-Germinator + Kalibrate + Micro 500 + High NRG-N through the drip tape during the growing season. Makes sense, and they look great. They have been lifted out of the ground and are now awaiting harvest.
AgroLiquid's Retail Partner out here is Gary Schwieger of Soil Logic. Gary is pretty new to retail partnering but has some AgroLiquid out in a number of fields on a number of crops. That's Gary and Sales Account Manager Bruce Keck admiring some of the onions in the field here. There were onions being harvested all over and trucks loaded with onions headed all over the country.
Here is another seed crop, this time carrot seed. This guy had a big semi-trailer full of carrot seed from just 15 acres. It is a pretty valuable trailer right there.
They look good to me. There are grapes everywhere.
This had a different planter fertilizer, and had urea broadcast for nitrogen. Well looks a little short to me, but we'll see. Growers that we met are anxious to use some AgroLiquid because it is different and offers advantages to what is being used now. But they have to try it out first, as this is a new area for AgroLiquid. But so far so good.
