Soybean Trait Packages

Selecting varieties is one of the first decision you make for each growing season.

In previous years, the most important factors that came to mind were yield, maturity, disease package and lodging potential. This year, a new factor rises to the top…herbicide traits. According to Wisconsin Weed Science, there have been 20 unique cases of herbicide resistance in the state spread across 13 different weed species and 6 herbicide sites of action.

Resistant weeds are a force to be reckoned with, however there still are a few tools in the toolbox to help fight back. 

You can prepare for this fight, by first selecting a variety with an herbicide-resistant trait. Check your recent soybean purchase to see which trait(s) will go into battle for you.

I hope you all had a fantastic August. Although we had a few days of hot weather toward the end of the month, cooler days are coming. It’s less than 120 days until winter. Soon we’ll be digging out the warm clothing and finding our boots to prepare for the colder weather that is surely on its way. If you haven’t locked in your propane supply but would still like to, please call your local Premier Energy office to see if the lock in price has changed.

I hope everyone had the chance to enjoy the Independence Day holiday with family and friends. Thanks to all of you who called in your orders early so our staff could adjust to the mid-week holiday and help minimize the added pressure that the short work week brings. I’d also like to thank all of you who returned your propane contracts by the end of June. With a short window of when contracts are mailed to when they are due back, we really appreciate your patience and support. If reading this reminded you that your contract is still sitting on the kitchen table, just pick up the phone and call the energy office nearest to you. I’m sure we’ll be able to take care of you. The last of the propane contracts (Cap renewals) and safety mailings will be sent out later this month. On behalf of our energy team and everyone at your cooperative, thank you for choosing us to serve your propane needs again this year.
