Making planting plans for 2013

Jeff Caldwell 11/02/2012 @ 2:00pm Multimedia Editor for Agriculture.com and Successful Farming magazine.

Harvest is just about in the books. That's got a lot of farmers thinking about their crop rotations for 2013. While many say they'll likely stick to their conventional crop rotations, others say there's more profit potential on their farms in more soybeans. 

But, what about more continuous corn next year? A case can be made for and against that production system depending on your fields and what you've been accustomed to in the past. So, what are your acreage plans for next year? And, how will they be affected by rising seed prices?

Here are a few of the latest features & forums on planting decisions looking ahead to next spring.

Pondering corn-on-corn for 2013?

 

I will be changing rotation on one field to go back to soybeans. I haven't made much if any money on corn in the last two years. I will give two years of beans followed by a year of corn a try for next year.
