Crop Questions? We Can Show You the Answer.

Aug 05, 2019


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.

The first seven months of 2022 have evaporated, and mid-South farmers now find themselves within a stone’s throw of harvest season. Gone are the days of relying on time-worn hunches, a can of WD-40, and the Farmer’s Almanac when preparing for the season. In today’s high-tech farming, a pre-harvest checklist for combine set-up and calibration is mandatory for producing the accurate data that will inform next year’s high yields.
