Biomass and feedstock supplier Ecostrat has announced that USA BioEnergy has joined the BDO Zone Strategic Alliance as a partner in the Project Group.

The BDO Zone Initiative is an economic development platform that enables local communities to deploy powerful economic development tools – BDO Zone Ratings – to achieve the goal of driving, accelerating, and catalysing bio-based investment and commercial project development in BDO Zone-designated regions for new biofuel, renewable chemical, biogas and bioproduct plants.

USA BioEnergy specialises in renewable fuels development and is building a series of advanced biorefineries that use sustainably sourced lower-valued wood residuals to create Sustainable Aviation Fuel and Renewable Naphtha.

Its process utilises gasification, Fischer-Tropsch, upgrading, carbon capture and sequestration. USA BioEnergy plans to deliver over 100 million gallons of SAF to LAX annually, thus reducing GHG emissions by 2.5 million metric tons of CO2 per year or 50 million metric tons over a 20-year period.

Fungicide Applications: When You Should Spray Your Corn

Video: Fungicide Applications: When You Should Spray Your Corn

In this video, Pioneer Field Agronomist Paul Yoder provides advice on when you should consider a fungicide application for your corn. In fields with good stand and emergence, fields will benefit the most from a fungicide to increase standability during harvest. Multiple on-farm trials have shown spraying a fungicide has resulted in more than an 8 bu/A increase in corn yields, giving farmers good ROI on their fungicide investment. Applying a fungicide during VT is the optimal time to increase standability during harvest. Waiting until silking will not give corn as much of a benefit. Protecting the ear leaf is the most important factor in determining yield and test weight for corn, so applying a fungicide at the right time to ensure that leaf is protected is vital.
