The Red River Farm Network has joined forces with Pioneer Seeds to bring farmers weekly agronomy updates during the 2019 planting season. This week, the team visited Black River Ag at Red Lake Falls, Minnesota. Pioneer sales representative Luke Forness says it’s been a long winter, but spring is coming. “The upcoming week looks warm and dry, which will bring the remaining frost out of the ground.” In colder soil temperatures, Pioneer field agronomist Zach Fore says seed treatments help protect genetic potential. “Planting dates for corn are probably two or three weeks earlier compared to 20 or 30 years ago. Part of that is because of seed treatments.” View the Facebook Live video here.
