No, I’m not going into carpentry. But, some of the advertising I’ve been hearing about soybean seed reminds me of this old line about hammers.
There are a number of companies offering only a single weed control strategy for soybeans. Now, no doubt glyphosate tolerant soybeans are one of the top agricultural innovations of all time. We love them. And Peterson Farms Seed offers a fabulous lineup of Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans with varieties that will fit pretty much any field on your farm.
But that hammer is not the only tool in our toolbox.
We believe you need multiple tools on your farm to battle glyphosate resistant weeds. That is why we have a great lineup of LibertyLink soybeans, offering you another mode of action. That is why we’re working with trait providers to bring Xtend (dicamba resistant) soybeans to your farm. That is why we’re producing some early increases of Enlist (2,4-D resistant) soybeans. And that is why we have hosted trials of HPPD resistant soybeans for the last three years.
The tool box in your shop has lots of different tools for different situations. Peterson Farms Seed is working every day to make sure your weed control toolbox for soybeans does too!
Oh, and one more thing: One of the recent ads brags about a 6 bushel advantage in “National Trials.” Well, maybe they have a big advantage in Louisiana or Ohio…or maybe Oklahoma. But our five years of trials—right here where you farm—show our LibertyLink soybeans and our Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans leading the pack. So unless you have a “national” farm, you can plant either technology from Peterson Farms Seed with confidence, knowing that our local testing and local focus will perform on your farm.
