Success Strategies on Wheat

Practical Farm Research - PFR Proven

Author: Maggie Holt

Many growers are interested in new and unique methods to increase wheat yields, while others may be growing wheat for the first time in many years. Beck's has compiled multi-year, multi-location research and agronomy information that we believe can help farmers achieve higher yields and improve their efficiency.

We have condensed this information into what we feel are key success strategies from our Practical Farm Research Program (PFR)® and agronomy insights to help you be more successful with your wheat crop.

CropTalk: In-Season Decision Making: Mid-Season

June 2022

Author: Jon Skinner

Practical Farm Research (PFR)® has become the go-to resource for farmers to gain information on new products and practices, and 2022 marks the third season of studies designed to test in-season management decisions to aid in profitability. These studies focus on real-world situations that we all encounter in the field and decisions we are forced to make to maintain profitability. In last month’s issue of CropTalk, we higlighted management strategies for early in the season. This month, we expand on that theme by highlighting studies and data for the rest of the season!

CropTalk: In-Season Decision Making: Early

May 2022

Author: Nate Firle

The 2022 growing season kicks off our third year exploring a category of studies within Practical Farm Research (PFR)® designed to provide data to help you make more profitable in-season decisions. Compacting rain, cold snaps, frost, or hail are some of the uncontrollable in-season events that affect stands, plant health, and crop development, ultimately causing us to revisit our original plans in order to maintain profitability.

CropTalk: What’s New for 2022 in PFR?

May 2022

Another year brings about another round of new products and practices for Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR)® team to try. This growing season, there are 15 new studies for corn and 14 new studies for soybeans. Within those 29 new studies, 29 never-before-tested-in-PFR products will be used across the seven PFR sites and additional cooperator locations. Of those products, ten will be applied to both corn and soybean studies, twelve new products to corn exclusively, and seven to soybeans only.
