Field Check up Series

Seeds Of Success–Every season begins with a customized plan. Your Seedsman will take into account your ideal planting window, specific soil conditions from field to field and how to make that work with weather conditions.

  • Track Field History
  • Discuss planting expectations
  • Evaluate field conditions
  • Conduct stand counts
  • Note insect issues

A Healthy Start

As plants take root, your Seedsman will provide a personal consultation to set you up for success-scouting for nutrient deficiencies, checking for foliar diseases and inspecting for insect and weed pressure.

  • Scout for nutrient deficiency
  • Check for foliar disease
  • Inspect for weeds
  • Note insect issues

Watch the Plant. Watch out for Pests and Weeds.

This Field Check Up Series stage focuses on plant development and overall plant health. Your Seedsman will evaluate the plant, looking for signs of heat, moisture issues and any nutrient deficiencies. This is also when pests and weeds can arrive in full force, so we need to be ready to respond if pressure is high.

  • Evaluate pollination
  • Complete weed evaluation
  • Dig and compare roots
  • Evaluate node/root mass
  • Collect soil samples
  • Measure plant stands
  • Recommend fungicides

The Home Stretch

This stage of the Field Check Up Series includes final preparations and inspections for harvest. We're evaluating plant health and monitoring final development of crops.

  • Estimate yields
  • Develop harvest schedule
  • Weigh side-by- sides
  • Develop combine call list
  • Evaluate harvest goals
  • Provide Custom Crop Report
