Looking ahead to the 2019 growing season, profitably should be on the mind of every farmer. Some questions that might be top of mind include: “Will it be more profitable to plant corn or soybeans? From fertilizer programs, nitrogen decisions, chemical programs, to seed, what is the magic recipe for profitably for 2019?” Knowing that every farm and field is different, there aren’t always easy answers to those questions.

Drones have evolved to become more capable of complex jobs but now at a lower price than ever before. Beck’s has developed partnerships with multiple companies that can both supply hardware like DJI, but also supply programing with Drone deploy. Offering drones and drone training is just another way Beck's helps farmers succeed.
For a large part of the Midwest, the 2017 planting season has been one for the record books. Unfortunately, for all the wrong reasons. When we drive from area to area, we are seeing corn plants in a wide array of stages. Uneven stands and multiple planting dates can wreak havoc on deciding when to apply a fungicide. If you have been following Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR)®, we are seeing a positive ROI when we have applied fungicide at the VT growth stage. Over the last four years, we have seen a 9.4 Bu./A. advantage applying Headline AMP® at the right time, making this one of our PFR Proven™ products. Now the question to ask yourself is, how can I apply fungicide at the correct time with all the replant and unevenness in my fields?
