Insights In Your Seed Decision Making

Jan 21, 2018

A successful growing season starts with the right seed. But how can you be sure what the right seed is when you see so many conflicting reports?  How can you feel secure about your investment? Especially if these are your tough acres.

Choosing the right seed
Matching the right seed to each soil type at the right population plays a significant role in boosting yield potential and helping reduce risk in your plan. Your Local GreenPoint Ag Retailer has a broad selection of opportunities within the InCompass®  brand of tools to help you choose the right seed to match each field.
Because CROPLAN® seed  hybrids and varieties are rated on their performance across specific soil types, you can confidently select the product that matches each field’s soil conditions. CROPLAN® seed data ratings also help specify which varieties may be more effective on better ground or less productive fields, allowing you to potentially reduce populations to help save on input costs in less productive fields.

Answer Plot® Program: Most Robust Data Set in the industry.
The Answer Plot® Program includes more than 6 MM data points and over 200 research-trial locations across the country. Specifically 20 of these sites focus on southern based weather patterns and soil types. The Characterization Chart (CHT) interprets that data to be seen across multiple yield environments, including the Tough Acre.  See how your hybrids stack up on some of the toughest fields in the country. Use data to make detailed comparisons of seed from a variety of companies. These comparisons take into account soil type, crop rotation, plant population and management practices such as the level of fertility and type of tillage. And, because the hybrids have undergone numerous side-by-side comparisons, field variability has been virtually eliminated in the data.  Insights like Response to Nitrogen, Response to Population and Yield Environment, drive optimized yield and returns across the toughest of farms.

Through the data, you can feel secure in your investment in the Tough Acre with CROPLAN® hybrids.  Supported by the local Answer Plot® program and Insight Plots, GreenPoint Ag can bring you the data to identify which seed products are most efficient under limited resources to defend more yield with limited risk.

If you don’t see terms like Response to Nitrogen, Response to Population or Top ten list in your tools, ask your local GreenPoint Ag representative to for a preview.

The Equity is pleased to announce that as of October 3, 2022, The Equity Farm & Home Store will open a second location. We will be operating in the former Home Center store located at 4 Do-It Dr, Altamont, Illinois that was owned and operated by the Mathias family for many years in the Altamont community. After many years in business, the Mathias family decided it was time to exit the retail business and felt it was a good transition to sell store inventory to The Equity who was already a member of the Do-It-Best franchise family and has a reputation for serving customers in our rural communities.
