Retailer Relationship Makes Big Impact at Harvest
De Smet, SD: When it comes to choosing his hybrids and varieties, Greg Albrecht’s relationship with his retailer, Win Noem, is critical. He often relies on Noem to advise him before making his seed and herbicide decisions.
“I’ve been planting NK® Corn and Soybeans for almost 20 years now, and I work mostly with Win,” Albrecht said. “And to tell you the truth, he handles the reins on our whole corn and soybean program. We have so much going on between crops and livestock that it’s good to work with him and have his expertise.”
This trust has paid off. Noem’s suggestion to use CruiserMaxx® Beans with Vibrance® seed treatment, a combination of separately registered products, on his soybeans made a difference in terms of controlling aphid pressure.
“We’ve noticed that when we use it, we don’t have to spray for aphids nearly as early – or sometimes at all,” Albrecht said.
“We had some dry spells this year, but even so, they still performed well,” he said. “My soybeans are yielding 10% to 20% higher than last year – across the board.”
