CropTalk: Across the Acres: Choosing Your Hard

October 2021

Author: Maggie Holt

Earlier this year, the Education team approached the Marketing team with an idea for a podcast and asked for our input on turning it into a reality. Their team was dedicated, did their research, and spent hours discussing names, content ideas, and guest interviewers, and finally, after months of hard work, Across the Acres was born.

CropTalk: If You Teach a Man to Fish

Author: Maggie Holt

If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.

I used the same proverb to introduce my December 2020 CropTalk feature article If You Give a Man a Fish. In it, I detailed the selfless work of Kenton and Autumn Hofer from Bridgewater, South Dakota, and their tireless efforts with Growing Hope Globally. Growing Hope is an agricultural-based organization dedicated to providing training on sustainable agriculture, nutrition, hygiene and sanitation, access to water, seeds, and land to people in need around the world.

CropTalk: Research by the Numbers

April 2021

Author: Maggie Holt

6. That’s the number of years I had worked here at Beck’s before taking a true, in-depth tour of the biotech building here in Atlanta, IN. But earlier this year, a few members of our research team opened their doors and allowed me to follow them around for two hours as they explained the amazing work their teams do, day in and day out. We are lucky to have 101 beyond talented full-time employees (with 47 job titles among them) across 7 locations who dedicate their time and energy to bringing farmers highperforming, regional products quickly and efficiently.

CropTalk: If You Give a Man a Fish

Author: Maggie Holt

If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. That’s how the proverb goes. And while the age-old adage has been claimed by many cultures over the years, it’s not really who said it that matters but rather, what was said.

For Kenton and Autumn Hofer from Bridgewater, South Dakota, it’s a belief they stand behind and commit themselves to fulfilling.

CropTalk: When it Comes to Soybean Threats, the Best Defense is a Good Offense

September 2019

Author: Maggie Holt

Primary methods of controlling soybean threats in fi elds used to be fairly straight forward. Start with the most resistant variety available, and then apply your fungicides and insecticides in a timely manner. Rotating with corn or other non-host crops was always an added management practice many farmers considered. However, there is a trifecta of threats to soybean crops that are increasing in severity and causing drastic economic losses in fields throughout the Midwest.

February 2019
