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!

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.

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.
