Sponsored: The Importance of Tissue & Soil Testing
In 1964 Beck’s planted their first ever Practical Farm Research (PFR)® Plot. Today, Beck’s PFR evaluates over 126 studies, comparing over 150 products across multiple locations throughout the Midwest to learn how different management practices and new technologies perform.
All of this is done with one goal in mind, to provide farmers with the data and information they need to add profitability to their operation.
With so many products, practices and variability from season to season, there are also a lot of questions on farmer’s minds. Beck’s set out to find a way to answer these questions in a new series titled #AskPFR.
Join Jim Schwartz, Director of PFR and Agronomy, and Beck’s PFR team in the latest episode of #AskPFR as they look to answer some of the top questions on farmers minds. Some of these questions include: ""How, when, and where should you tissue test?" "How do you handle your samples once you pull them?" "What should you be thinking about when evaluating the results?"
Do you have questions about one of Beck’s PFR studies or something you’re seeing in the field? Make sure to send them to the PFR team on social media using @beckshybrids and #AskPFR. You can also email your questions to AskPFR@BecksHybrids.com.
Beck’s PFR is the largest source of unbiased, cutting-edge agronomic information in the industry. More than 110 different studies were conducted in 2016, comparing over 150 products across multiple locations to learn how different management practices and new technologies perform in field environments. In evaluating agronomic practices and input products, not comparing seed products, Beck’s PFR aims to help farmers maximize their input dollars and increase their bottom line.
