    A Letter to Iowa Farmers from Sonny and Scott Beck

    During the first week of September, an individual associated with a competitive seed company, placed an ad in multiple Iowa newspapers with the intent to cause Beck’s Hybrids harm and damage our reputation. Beck’s Hybrids did NOT create, develop or run this ad. This mean-spirited message does not reflect our culture and company values. On the contrary, our complete focus and purpose is to help farmers succeed.

In today's world, many of us have our favorite piece of technology. For college students like Meg, laptops quickly become your best friend when you're in need of writing a paper, finishing a project, or checking out your favorite social media page.

On today's Intern Avenue blog post, Meg shares with us how even though her laptop is an important tool, it’s not what's most important. Join her as she explains why she decided to say bye-bye to her beloved laptop and hello to the rest of the World this semester.

LibertyLink Soybeans - Bailey Family Farm from Iola, IL

Not controlling glyphosate resistant weeds can reduce yields by more than 30%. Glyphosate is a great herbicide; however, the continued use has resulted in weed resistance throughout the Midwest. Not only do Beck's LibertyLink® soybeans win the fight against weed resistance, but they win the yield battle too!Bailey Family Farm from Iola, IL, is using LibertyLink soybeans to control glyphosate resistant weeds across all their soybean acres."Before Beck's LibertyLink beans, we had a terrible waterhemp problem.
