PFR Report: Corn High-Speed Planting Preparation

Published on Wednesday, March 3, 2021

How can a farmer capitalize on increasing yields through higher planting speeds? Clayton Stufflebeam, Practical Farm Research (PFR®) Agronomist, discusses data from Beck’s Hybrids PFR plots regarding high-speed planting research. In this video, Clayton goes over the five main points to consider when implementing high-speed corn planting on farms:

1. Be aware of the row-unit set up, ensuring it is sufficient for high-speed planting

2. Use a hydraulic downforce system for individual row-to-row control, like DeltaForce®

3. Have a ‘good ride’ for proper singulation

4. Install aftermarket closing wheels

5. Keep up with planter maintenance

Watch to learn more about the future of high-speed studies in PFR!
