With an open winter, the prospects of an early spring planting season have increased. “We always have a better crop when we get early planting done,” said SES VanderHave Regional Sales Manager Nick Revier. “The record crop was in 2012 when 90 percent of the crop was planted in April. However, the dry weather pattern and the amount of black fields is a worry. SES VanderHave will have a record number of plots to test new varieties this season. “We’re going to have some new things to offer for 2022. We’re looking at increasing the tolerance for root rot disease, especially fusariam and cercospora.”
