At Beck’s, our goal has always been to help farmers succeed, and that success begins in the field with superior yielding products. We know that every farmer has unique needs and every farm is different. That’s why we are dedicated to providing farmers with the right soybean variety for every field, regardless of the trait or source company. As spring approaches and you’re busy adjusting your equipment and finalizing seed orders, remember that Beck’s has the leading soybean products you need to maximize weed control and protect your yield potential.
Access to Choices
Beck’s provides customers with more soybean choices than anyone else in the industry. With access to Roundup Ready 2 Xtend®, LibertyLink®, glyphosate tolerant and conventional soybeans, farmers can find the right product for every farm, all from one company. Through our multi-year testing, Beck’s has seen strong performance across all of our soybean trait platforms, ultimately giving farmers the ability to choose which platform is best for their needs and their weed control program.
Competitive Genetics & Regional Selection
We work hard to bring top performing soybeans to our customers. Two ways we do that is through extensive testing and through regional product selection. Our ability to provide farmers with the right product for the right acre is driven by regional product selection. Unlike many of our competitors, instead of choosing soybean varieties that perform across a large footprint, we select region-specific products that bring higher yields in smaller geographies. We also have numerous replicated and strip trials across our entire marketing footprint that compare all of our current soybeans and competitive brands. The below chart highlights Beck’s multi-year competitive advantage of 1.6 Bu./A. across almost 30,000 comparisons.
Best in Class Seed Quality & Treatment
Here at Beck’s, we take our seed seriously. We constantly strive for the highest quality products and best seed treatment for your farm each year. Setting the bar high, we strive for a 90 percent germination rating on every bag of seed that we process. Our Escalate™ seed treatment is ever evolving, providing our customers with the best seed protection from the start. The current Escalate™ blend includes two fungicides, a systemic insecticide, biologicals and a polymer coating for improved flowability and efficacy. Best of all, our proprietary seed treatment comes standard on every bag of seed at no added cost! Beck’s leads the industry in seed quality and seed treatment.
We Stand Behind Our Seed
We work hard to provide technology choices, regionally-focused products, top-of-the-line performance, and superior seed quality and treatment in every bag. If there is ever an unsatisfactory stand or event which the need to replant occurs, a Beck’s representative will gladly work with you to determine best solution and provide replant seed 100% free of charge.
Planting season is quickly approaching and the team at Beck’s looks forward to providing you with any support you need to help you place the soybeans you currently have on order and assist you in finalizing any outstanding seed orders. Because here at Beck’s, our ultimate goal is to help our customers succeed!
