High wheat yields are no accident. “It’s not just fertility, water management or genetics,” says BASF Technical Services Representative Andrew Adams. “It’s the combination of all those working together.” BASF Technical Marketing Manager Logan Grier says keeping the plant healthy is top priority. “Right from the beginning, 60 percent of yield is already determined at the time you’re planting the seed,” explains Grier. “It’s so important to make sure the seed is ready to come into the world, protected from diseases with a seed treatment and plant health components.” BASF is a sponsor of Wheat U, a new event all about hands-on learning for wheat yields and disease management.
