Would you like to listen and learn from a farmer who has a yield of 206 bu/acre? Maybe. What if the farmer had 206 bu/acre yield with SOYBEANS? Alex Harrell, of southwest Georgia, will be one of our main speakers. Alex treated his seed with Brandt SeedZone Zn, planted a population of 85,000 in 30” rows, strip-tilled into a cover crop. (Brandt is sponsoring Alex Harrell).
