Manage, monitor and maximize your corn and soybean crop’s potential with DEKALB

October 17, 2022  Sponsored by DEKALB

Harvest is the optimal time to evaluate the performance of your crop. Every field is unique and demands the best tools to improve efficiency, manage risk and make the most of every acre.

“Farmers are constantly evaluating product maturity, agronomics and disease tolerance to understand what works best for their fields, whether it’s an early or late start to the growing season,” says Adam Pfeffer, Row Crop Market Development Manager at Bayer. “It’s all about yield. Understanding the goals for your crops is important for maximizing yield potential and ensuring you have the right maturity or agronomic traits helps manage risks and maximize performance.”

Pfeffer uses FieldViewTM to track, scout and measure performance on new hybrids and varieties in local trials. “To evaluate the performance of DEKALB® seeds mid-season, we have to be physically out scouting the fields,” says Pfeffer. “FieldView allows us to identify areas of concern – including standability, any disease development, nutrient deficiencies, stock integrity, etc. – early so we can either visit those areas on foot or keep a close eye on the problem through the season by ‘dropping a pin’ for easy visibility.”

According to Pfeffer, the easier it is to monitor the performance of your DEKALB seed, the easier it is to maximize the value. “More and more of our trial co-operators and customers are now using FieldView to trial different hybrids and varieties to determine what works best on their fields. They really like the ability to compare yields and establish top performers that help guide planning decisions for the next growing season.”
