Jason's talk will focus on multi-genetic planting, a new technology that allows the ability for precision placement of seed genetics. We will talk on how Beck’s Hybrids got started with this technology, as well as its future in the marketplace. Beck’s Hybrids has just started its 4th crop season of testing multi-genetic planting. Multi-year yield data will be discussed on the benefits of precision placement of the correct genetics on every acre. A large focus will be also be concentrated on the overall economics of a multi-genetic planting system. Multi-genetic planters are now commercially available for farmers for the first time and given the fact that Beck’s Hybrids now has a 3-year dataset of yields from this technology, we can now review the break-even economics of how long it will take for a multi-genetic system to pay for itself on the farm.
