Take Time To Discover The “Why” In Your Fields

Published on Thursday, August 20, 2015

With the completion of late-season applications, corn and soybeans are advancing quickly to maturity. But before the combines roll, take the opportunity to evaluate management decisions made throughout the season. Significant differences become more evident as the crop finishes its reproductive phase. The combine will tell us the results, but the most important knowledge is the “why”. Take time, prior to harvest, to discover the “why” in your fields.

You can learn more about the “why” by attending a Beck’s Field Show at one of our Practical Farm Research (PFR)® locations in August. In 2015, Beck’s invested a record amount in agronomic testing at our PFR locations to provide answers to the “why” on your farm. Learn multi-year testing results, new studies and observations on fungicides, nitrogen management, high yield attempts, and much more. If a Beck’s Field Show doesn’t work into your late summer schedule, keep an eye out for the study results this fall in the 2015 Beck’s PFR book. We will be sharing many of the newest study results and highlights later in the year at the Beck’s Winter Meetings.
