Making seed selections for the next growing season can be challenging. Sorting through new varieties and traits can seem like a daunting task with how fast the choices can change. Narrow the focus of products to what is required for each field to make things easier. Previous crop, soil type, past disease issues, planting population, row spacing, and weed issues all play a big role in what variety of corn or soybeans is selected for each acre. Wheat Growers has multiple plots scattered throughout the trade territory that give us a snapshot of product performance. When looking at plot data try to use data that is comparable to similar cropping systems on your own acres. Local agronomy knowledge is very helpful as well. Ask your agronomist about product performance as they view these products on many different acres.
