    Understanding Your Harvest Results

    Understanding Your Harvest Results

    This time of year, we typically have our harvest results in front of us to begin making sense of yields by field and by product. This information is very important for making product selections for 2022. But as you’ll often see quoted throughout the industry: “Individual results may vary.” What does this mean? How should we approach interpreting our results in 2021 to plan for 2022? Host Jim Robinson, Rob-See-Co Chief Technology Officer, visits with Brad Schindler, a Direct Sales Representative at Rob-See-Co, to break down the disclaimer. Jim and Brad discuss factors that impact a hybrid or variety’s performance, why you should analyze data from surrounding regional areas as well as from year to year, and how a farmer can utilize this information to make planting decisions in 2022.
