Capturing Maximum ROI
The question is: Are you reaping the benefits of these new hybrids and varieties as soon as they become available?
"Over the last several years, we’ve seen up to 5- to 6-bushel-per-acre yield increases with many new hybrids as compared to the current elite hybrids," says Brad Miller, region product manager, WinField. "Farmers need to capitalize on these gains as soon as possible or they’re losing out on yield."
MANAGEMENT INSIGHTS ENABLE SUCCESS
A primary reason why you can confidently plant new genetics in a shorter period of time is the management information gleaned through the Answer Plot® program.
"Our Answer Plot® research includes numerous replicated trials for statistical accuracy and a high level of confidence in our data," Miller notes. "Through this research, we develop key insights about the right management practices, such as plant populations, soil types, plant nutrition and other factors that will help farmers capture maximum yield potential the first year they plant new products."
"Farmers are going to have approximately the same cost per acre for seed, whether they’re buying products that came out this year or four years ago," Miller notes. "However, sticking with an older hybrid with less yield potential than new releases for several years could cost that farmer 15 to 20 bushels per acre in lost yield during that time.
"WinField agronomists have the tools to help you take advantage of new seed technology as soon as it’s available and capture maximum return on your seed investment,” he adds.
