Beck’s Agronomist Travis Coleman says growers shouldn’t be in a rush to plant if the conditions aren’t right.
“I know a lot of knee-jerk reactions are trying to get stuff planted. I know that a lot of soil conditions are right, but temperatures are cold,” he says.
He says Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR) has shown that farmers have time to get crops in the ground.
“We’ve done a lot of research at Beck’s that says there’s still optimal planting windows into early May, and even into the middle part of May to get our corn and soybeans planted,” he says.
