For years, soybeans have not received the same love that corn has, and is often referred to as “that crop between corn crops.” It’s not uncommon for many farmers to plant all their corn before even thinking about starting on soybeans, and in most cases, the care or precision dedicated to soybean fields is nowhere near what it is when planting corn. Recently, however, some of the more progressive farmers throughout the Midwest have been giving soybeans a little more love.

Two years ago, Sonny Beck challenged our Practical Farm Research (PFR)® team to raise 400-bushel corn. Unlike all the other studies done in PFR, economics and profitability have little influence on this particular study. Instead, the focus here is solely on maximizing yield by utilizing non-traditional management practices in combinations that may be unpractical in today’s economy.
Have you ever wondered what Beck’s PFR team does all day? Do you want to see the studies they’re conducting first hand? Now you can!

Travis Burnett, Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR)® Agronomist, introduces a new project in which Beck’s production team conducted side-by-side comparisons of ripper points.
Beck's PFR Agronomist, Travis Burnett is in the field with Rich Graham from Kingdom Ag, the makers of Shred Select™, a new residue management tool.
One of the most common questions we get at PFR is centered around soil testing. Our goal is to have an accurate sampling system that gives us the best representation of what is out in the field.
