Crop Health Imaging™ | Valuable Tool For Assessing Field Conditions

Author: Craig Rogers

For a large part of the Midwest, the 2017 planting season has been one for the record books. Unfortunately, for all the wrong reasons.

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.
