How will a change in crop rotation affect future years?
|So, it’s April, and the agriculture world is filled with news of crop acreage reports, global supplies, South American yield reports, and 90 day weather outlooks. It seems every year we say “it’s not a normal year”. 2017 is certainly beginning far from normal. Economics of producing and selling a crop are challenging to say the least. Lately, the news seems to be that the American farmer might plant less corn this year over last year. If you have some acres that are in limbo there are a couple things to maybe consider:
If you are leaning toward moving some acres over to corn, Prairie Brand still has several of our highest yielding and best suited hybrids for your ground still available. PowerCore, our newest above ground option, is available to try in certain maturities, but many of our best selling Refuge Advanced hybrids can still be placed on your acre. Several of our tried and true high yielding RR2 soybeans are still in supply if soybeans are your way to go.
Contact a Prairie Brand representative to look at options and to correctly place the best hybrid/variety on your fields. We look forward to the chance to work with you!
