WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED FROM 2021? Join Aaron Carmer and Collin Scherer for Episode 3 of The DIG.
“…and I will give you rest.” (Jesus speaking) Matthew 11:28b

Early-season corn and soybean pests and diseases are among the many challenges farmers face each year when attempting to achieve high profits in the fall. The good news is that for most of these, there are effective management practices. While we can’t cover every early-season pest and disease in one article, these are some of the most common ones to keep an eye out for as planting continues and crops emerge.
On January 11, 2022, the EPA completed the registration amendment process for Enlist One® (2,4-D choline) and Enlist Duo® (2,4-D choline + glyphosate) herbicides for the 2022 planting season through January 11, 2029. The Enlist® weed control system includes Enlist herbicides, Enlist Ahead Training, and Enlist E3® soybeans, cotton and corn.
To maximize yield, seeds must germinate and emerge uniformly. Seed size and shape (also called grade size) is not correlated to germination, vigor, or yield. If planting conditions are good, all grade sizes will have equal quality and the size and health of the embryo within the seed will not change.
Life is full of obstacles that test our faith. Our careers, our relationships, our financial situations; maybe it’s our friends or our kids, or even just general disappointment at unmet expectations. And sometimes, it’s something so much more.
ARE YOU READY FOR PLANTING SEASON 2022? Join Aaron Carmer and Collin Scherer for Episode 2 of The DIG.
Episode 1 of The DIG is here and we’re talking all things Spring Planter Prep.
Hosts Aaron Carmer and Collin Scherer take a deep dive into some of the most important areas you need to be looking at on your planter to set yourself up for a trouble-free season.

Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return there without watering the earth and making it bear and sprout, and furnishing seek to the sower and bread to the eater; so will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:6-11)
In the cold winter months, we tend to hibernate. Unless, of course, you have livestock. Or a heated shop. But even then, it’s harder to get motivated when the temperatures are low, the winds are blowing, and the ground is frozen. Spring can seem a long way off when you’re sipping coffee on a still-dark February morning.
The research department at Beck’s continues to grow and mature, and our breeders’ appetite for more phenotyping data points to be collected in the yield trial fields each growing season grows with it. Hybrid phenotypes are the visual observations of the plant resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment. Given the many different locations each testing hybrid is planted in during each testing season, the importance of understanding this interaction helps breeders make better product advancement decisions.
In the February issue, we dove into the 18 new PFR Proven™ corn products and practices for 2021. Additionally, we added 17 new soybean PFR Proven products and practices to the lineup after three years of multi-location research. Testing across diverse soil conditions and factors allows our Practical Farm Research (PFR)® team to provide unbiased analysis of the profitability of products and practices for each individual operation and farm. What products or practices might you be able to implement or improve on your farm?
Can you believe we are three months into 2022? Time flies when you’re having fun, right? March brings our NINTH episode of Across the Acres podcast. Launched in August of 2021, Across the Acres is hosted by Carlye Frye (Delta Region Training Innovation Manager) and David Ringger (Central Region Training Innovation Manager). Each month, they introduce a member of the Beck family of employees, dealers, and farmers across our marketing territory and provide a platform to share stories about their careers, families, and their faith.
The easiest weed to control is one that never emerges. Cliché? Maybe. But as weeds continue to evolve, mounting resistance to herbicides builds every year.
