Weighing Short-Term Savings vs. Maximizing Profit Per Bushel
Corn at harvest
According to an economic analysis from Purdue University, over the last 6 years – on average – only a 10% increase in corn productivity has been the difference between making a profit or not making a profit.

Asking the right questions has never been more important. That’s why as 2021 ramps up it’s critical to make the best input decisions based on your own unique farm conditions to help maximize your profit per bushel.
We know that some companies offer discount bundles to add crop protection products to seed purchases. While these short-term savings might be tempting, it could lead to inferior and fewer crop management choices and cost you yield in the long run.
We believe in giving you choices, not limiting them. We also know the way to achieve the best return on investment is to have the flexibility to use the products that make sense for your farm and deliver the best results for you.
Better Yield is the Better Deal
As you’re thinking about your crop management plan for 2021, we encourage you to ask yourself 2 questions.
- What are your profit objectives for the year?
- What will it take to get there?
It’s important to select the best products for your farm, because better yield is the better deal.
When used preemergence at full label rates, Acuron® corn herbicide helps growers find 5-15 more bushels an acre than with any other herbicide*. That’s because it controls tough, yield robbing weeds, has long lasting residual activity and flexible application timing and unmatched crop safety. Less weed competition translates into more nutrients, sunlight and water available for the growing corn, which leads to more bushels and extra revenue potential.
