What a Seedsman Looks for During the Reproductive Stage
Walking your fields and checking plant health are just some of the key actions a Seedsman takes to make sure your crop will be ready for harvest.
Previous Visit Follow-UpYour Seedsman will note growth or changes since the last visit. They can also use side-by-side maps in the Climate FieldView™ platform to compare the performance of different populations, planting dates and other variables.
Scout for ActionYour fields will be prioritized using Field Health images. Your Seedsman will also evaluate pollination in corn and pod set in soybeans, and check for insect damage, weed pressure and overall plant health.
Look AheadYour Seedsman will prepare yield estimates and determine what tasks need to be accomplished to maximize yield potential before your fourth visit. It’s also a great time to predict harvest timing so your equipment is ready.
