    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.

If you were to show the same image or object to a hundred people, each person would perceive it differently. And that's ok, because it's what makes us who we are.

This is the theme in Ryan McAllister's latest post on the Beck's Blog. In his recent travels, Ryan came upon several things that reminded him of to the saying, "One Man's Trash is Another Man's Treasure."

Read about his latest adventures and his reflections on how we all see the world differently.


Field Stories: One Man's Trash is Another Man's Treasure

We all come at the world with different view points. The other day I passed a house with this large, welded together, colorfully painted, six foot tall metal rooster. Wait, what was that? I had to turn the truck around. Why didn’t I think of this?! Everyone needs a six foot tall metal rooster…

The “gypsy life” is a lifestyle Meghan is beginning to understand very well. This week, she found herself making several trips between school, home, and the beautiful back roads of Indiana. While on the road though, Meghan was lucky enough to have a special copilot with her—her grandfather, Gary. Read about Meg's fondest memories and special moments spent with Gramp in today's Intern Avenue blog.

Here at Beck’s, we hope you always know that our number one concern is you, the farmer.

Travis Kelley of Fayette County, OH said it best when we visited him a couple of weeks ago. “With Beck’s, it’s a group effort. Farmers aren’t just out there planting the seed and then left alone. They have someone there helping them to succeed.”

We want to help you succeed and give you the best opportunity to grow a good crop, no matter what the season and weather might bring. That is why we include our Escalate™ seed treatment standard on all Beck’s seed at no extra cost.

Watch Travis’s video below to learn more about the benefits he’s experienced this year with Escalate.
