2016 Season Options

With Spring finally arriving its time to start putting your crop plan into action and make those final decisions. There is a lot of growing interest in Conventional crops that hasn't gone unnoticed in our local area. Conventional crops while proving to have less expense as far as seed costs can potentially have hidden additional crop health expenses such as insecticide and fungicides to maintain the crops stature towards the end of the year when pressures from disease and/or insects can cause a weakened immune system and potentially cause a structural or metabolic failure causing losses in yield. On a more positive note conventional hybrids tend to have a higher yield potential than a traited crop due to the absence of BT and roundup ready genes which have been know to cause yield Drag. They also have to possibility of drawing a premium at market in select areas which looks appealing in low margin markets. My point here is that conventional hybrids are a potential high risk, potentially high reward crop and to get the best results it pays to have a written plan and a professional helping you along the way.
