Becks-Agronomy-Resources-Website-Banner

Beck’s generates a lot of agronomic information. The Agronomy Resources Library is an index of our PFR Reports, blog postings, ASK PFR, white papers and webinars by crop and topic. This page will be regularly updated to include the latest from the Beck’s team. 

Definitions: Videos are submitted from our team in the field, demonstrating real world challenges and providing agronomic insights. PFR Reports detail what we see in PFR studies throughout the season. Webinars are long-format agronomic deep dives, typically 45 min-1 hour. ASK PFR videos are in response to real-time questions submitted from farmers. (Submit your questions by using the hashtag #ASKPFR on social media). White papers are printable pdf resources with good overview information on agronomic phenomena. Blogs are agronomic deep dives written as articles.
