This may be the last box of beans through the treater for 2020. What a smooth planting season. Thank you for choosing Yield PRO Agronomy and Channel Seed. As we transition to spraying season please keep us in mind for all your chemical needs.
March 15th is the enrollment deadline for multi peril crop insurance for 2020. I am an agent working through AgPerspective Inc. and I would be glad to help choose the right coverage for your farm. There are many options and strategies when purchasing MPCI and hail/wind coverage. Working with a seasoned and experienced agency is very important. Having an agent that knows the technical and business side of farming is key. Most people buy insurance that only covers catastrophic loss. Please give me a call if interested. Jordan, 608-487-5945
Delivering a couple loads of chemicals was a nice change of pace. Prices on commodity chemicals like glyphosate and atrazine are very good right now. It is time to get chemicals ordered. Spring will be here soon.
Farmers including myself are always looking for ways to reduce cost of production. The 3 largest expenses for any crop are land, seed, and fertilizer. When choosing seed the #1 factor should be yield. If you buy a cheap hybrid or brand that ends up yielding 5 bu/a less than the more expensive product, it doesn't seem like a big loss. Some simple math will often help put cost savings on seed into perspective. With a 5 bushel loss at $3.50 corn you would have to pay $43.75 less for that cheap bag of seed. 10 bushel= $87.50, 15 bushel= $131.25. Buying the best seed and having someone who can help place these products correctly is very important.
