Low commodity prices have drastically reduced margins this year and the best way to make a profit will be to utilize all of your tools to their fullest potential. That means making sure your planter is ready for the field before its time to plant.
Here are a few reminders and things you should be sure to check before you pull out of the shop. These comments and suggestions only pertain to the listed bulk fill (central hopper) planters and to Beck’s large size seed. This means less than 1,200 seeds/lb. with weights of 60 lb./unit and heavier, and treated with Beck’s Escalate™ seed treatment. Grade sizes of concern are large MR and PL sizes.

If you have any questions or need help getting your planter ready for the season, do not hesitate to reach out to your Beck's seed advisor or dealer.
