With spring approaching and farmers making plans for 2021, Practical Farm Research (PFR®) has some resolutions and unique learnings to share. This research has been discovered over the last few years and could help you prepare for 2021. These insights have demonstrated to be profitable and reliable for most farms.
Here are a few strategies to consider implementing on farming operations in 2021:
Be prepared to capitalize on an early planting window if it is presented.
Continuously work on improving the planter pass.
Understand your plant stand.
Adjust plans based on planting date and conditions.
Consider your spray water source.
Fungicides are working, especially the new products with multiple modes of action.
Track and record differences or problems found throughout the season.
Follow the data and minimize emotional decisions.
Try something new.
These are just some of the agronomic options that can help you prepare for the upcoming planting season. Focus your time and energy on the one or two areas that need the most improvement and will provide the biggest impact on your farm. If you have any questions or want to discuss any of these topics further, please reach out to your local Beck’s Hybrids representative or PFR team member. Happy prepping season!
