With crop value and risk at all-time highs, growers need solid, trusted agronomic answers more than ever.  That’s exactly what WinField United’s Answer Plot® program offers. This year, data will be collected from roughly 30,000 trials conducted on 200 sites located in 33 states. Farmers not only have access to the data through WinField United’s R7® Tool, but they are also welcome to visit the plots and see firsthand the products and technology in action from seed selection to harvest.

Since 2008, Tennessee Farmers Cooperative has participated in the program that now has several locations across the region including Jackson, Manchester, and Greenfield, Tenn., and Hopkinsville, Ky. 

“Answer Plots are the best place to go to find information that will benefit your crop,” says an Obion Farmers Cooperative member.  “And it’s all done right here.  That’s the main thing.  What works for our area isn’t the same as other parts of the country, so it’s important that you see results that are relative to your location. It makes no difference if you’re a large or small farmer, the Answer Plot will benefit you.”

Growers who are interested in visiting an Answer Plot location should check with their local Co-op manager or agronomy specialist for opportunities to tour the nearest site. For more information about the Answer Plot program, visit www.answerplot.com.

For those not familiar with it, the incredibly innocuous name “plant bug” might illicit a chuckle on first hearing.
“Aren’t all bugs plant bugs?” you may ask. But for fruit, vegetable, and row-crop farmers — cotton producers, in particular — plant bugs are no laughing matter, and their name is synonymous with expensive inputs and lowered yields. Increased numbers of the insect, more specifically, the tarnished plant bug (TPB), are creating big problems within the cotton industry in parts of the Southeastern U.S.
