Ag tech tools

Set yourself up for success.

Making good seed decisions starts with leveraging the data that’s best suited for your operation. Ideally, this means fusing national data with highly localized data from your region or your farm specifically. ?Although you never know what the season will bring, the highest odds of success come from managing the seed as recommended.

One hybrid selection tool you can leverage to narrow down the field of seed choices is the WinField® United Characterization Charts (CHT Tool), which contains up to three years’ worth of Answer Plot® trial data. This allows you to compare CROPLAN® hybrids against those from other major companies based on soil type, crop rotation, plant population and management practices. Even if you already know which hybrids you want to plant, be sure to consult the CHT Tool to understand how to best manage those hybrids to derive optimal yield potential.

If you are among the 11 members of my audience (including my mom) who read my newsletter last month, you’ll recall that I was being a little braggy about getting caught in a snowstorm in the St. Paul area. Then we got hit with a snowstorm here a few days later. I guess I’m not as special as my mom thinks I am.

Despite the possibility of a few more nights of sub-freezing temperatures in the last week of April, our agronomy locations are not slowing down as they enter their busiest season. Our agronomy division and producer members are working hard to plant this year’s crop, with long days and short nights being the norm. It’s important to be extra cautious during the next couple of months. Farm machinery will be frequently entering and exiting fields and wide loads will be encountered on the road. Whether you’re driving to work or moving to the next field in your tractor, always be aware of your surroundings and never assume that others can see you. Take it slow and be safe.
