Trust in NK Runs in the Family
Hayfield, MN: Tom and Mike Franke not only have a lifetime of experience farming, but a lifetime of experience farming together. The two brothers can still be found together on the family farm today, helping one another out and working as a team.
Almost as strong as their loyalty to each other is their loyalty to NK® Soybeans. They’ve been planting the brand for more than 10 years and don’t intend to stop anytime soon.
“Overall, NK Soybeans just have a complete package,” Tom Franke said. “You have to try other seed once in a while to see if there’s anything better out there, but we’ve just found over the years that NK has had the best varieties for our soil.”
This season rewarded their loyalty yet again. Even in the face of unusually wet conditions, NK Soybeans S20-T6 brand, a high-performing variety with strong resistance to sudden death syndrome, delivered an average 73 bu/A.
