Direct Harvest Your Proso Millet with Spodnam®!
Did you know that you can now cost-effectively direct harvest proso millet using Spodnam®? Spodnam® is based on Pinolene, which is a proprietary terpene polymer designed for pod retention in Grains, Brassicas and Legumes. It melds with the natural waxes on pod surfaces and is vapor permeable but water resistant. Spodnam® is exempt from tolerance on all food crops.
You may be asking, does it work? Roy Pfaltzgraff of Haxtun, CO applied Spodnam® and direct harvested 440 acres of the 2018 proso millet crop which compared with swathing resulted in the following:
- Much faster harvest
- Lower dockage
- Higher test weight
- Better residue
- Enabled harvest of both hailed and drought-shorted millet crop
