Agronomy Tip: Continue Your Due Diligence
Sam Knott, Director of Central US Crops for Atticus, says, “We encourage local farmers to have relationships and seek out input for their agronomy decisions to make sure they're using the right product at the right time at the right rate. That will help them to get optimal control without blowing up their budgets.”
Knott says this due diligence is a year-round practice, whether applied to herbicide decisions or seed selection.
“The idea is to do the right things so that they prevent a bad day from ruining a corn or soybean crop,” Knott explains. “When we do the right things, we prevent weeds, bugs or diseases and set our crop up for its best return on investment possible.”
