Planting is officially underway here at Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR)® site in Henderson, KY! Our planting date and planting depth studies always kick off a new year of studies at our site, and this year is no exception. We are so excited to have the opportunity to conduct 65 different studies this year in an effort to help make your operation more profitable. The planting date and planting depth studies, among others, are excellent sources to reference in the PFR Book (which you can access here) before you start planting.
February is a very busy month for most farmers. For those of us growing wheat, it is the time to start scouting and planning applications of our first round of nitrogen (N) to this year’s crop. The teams at the many of Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR)® sites, including Kentucky, are conducting a number of N studies this year including rates, timing, and forms.

Happy New Year! What would be a better way to kick off the New Year than to attend a PFR Insight Meeting? New in 2017, PFR Insight Meetings (formally known as Beck’s Winter Meetings) will be nothing like any meeting you have previously attended. Showcasing our new PFR Proven™ concept, these meetings will provide unique insight into the technologies and management practices that you can translate into financial value for your farm.

Harvest is wrapped up at Beck’s Kentucky Practical Research (PFR)® site and this season had its fair share of challenges. Many of you experienced these same challenges, from cool, wet conditions early on to a very hot and dry June and an abundance of rain throughout July. What makes Beck’s PFR program so unique is that we test multiple products and management practices not just at one site, but across five other sites throughout our marketing area as well.
