Beck's Hybrids Extends Practical Farm Research (PFR®) with PFR Partners Program

March 26, 2012

Atlanta, Indiana - Beck's Hybrids' Practical Farm Research (PFR®) Partners program connects Beck's resources, personnel and knowledge with the local farmer, by conducting agronomic studies directly in the farmer's field.

"The PFR Partners program brings Beck's team of experienced PFR directors and personnel right to the farmer," said Scott Beck, vice president and PFR director at Beck's Hybrids. "By developing the program, we're giving farmers in our marketing area an opportunity to participate in practical farm research on their own farm.

"Beck's Practical Farm Research is focused with the farmer in mind. Each year, Beck's conducts PFR studies to learn how different management practices and new technologies perform in field environments. In 2011, more than 60 different types of research studies were conducted at Beck's four PFR sites located in Indiana and Illinois.

To extend the work done at the PFR sites, Beck's personnel work directly with farmers in a variety of research projects. Some of the studies include: Crop Health Imaging, Nitrogen Rates, Fungicide Timing, Beck 300 Bushel Challenge, Nitrogen Rescue Application with high clearance sprayer and nitrogen toolbar, Seed Treatment testing, and Seeding Rate studies.
