Sponsored: Importance of Tillers in Wheat Management

In Beck's latest Practical Farm Research (PFR)® Report, Jonathan Perkins is in the field at Beck's Effingham, Illinois, PFR site for a feekes 3 topdress application of wheat.

In order to determine nitrogen needs, we’re asking questions like, “What are the tillering counts per square foot?” and “How many units of nitrogen should we apply based on tiller counts?” 

Watch the video to learn more and be sure to check back during the growing season to see how things are progressing with our winter wheat studies.  


Beck's Hybrids PFR program conducts more than 90 different studies across multiple locations (9 states) to learn how different management practices and new technologies perform in field environments. Simply put, it is research focused with the farmer in mind. Click here to learn more.
