Thanks again Jason, I’m guessing these listens thought we weren’t going to talk about soybeans. THEY’RE WRONG!  We love soybeans.  We wanted to keep these separate.  A lot of times we spend more time on corn and I think we have to, because in this area corn is definitely our driving crop and the way we manage corn is so intense now at some level that I think it deserves more time.  However, I don’t want soybeans to be the forgotten crop.  They have a valuable role in crop rotation and why we plant them, and they can be fun to grow too, just not as fun to combine.  As we look at 2018 and what we’re going to apply in 2019, I think the biggest thing we need to remember is what happened in 2017. Do you remember, Jason, what happened to soybeans in 2017

Farm Planning with Mark HoekstraDefine what we mean by a farm planPutting a plan together for your operation in all aspects of the operationWhat needs to be included?SeedCrop ProtectionCrop NutritionRates which are based on the goals and crop rotation of the operationTechnology – our platform is called United InsightNot always in the farm plan in writing, but it is talked about in the planning process.Planting data set up correctly and follow it up with yield / harvest data at the end of the yearHow do you draft a farm plan?Paper and Computer to draft farm plansDrafted by growerEach grower and operation are unique, some farm plans may be similar, but they are all very customizable and individualized for each operationEvery grower has a different goal What value does a farm plan bring to the grower?It allows us to be more efficient and execute in a timely mannerIt helps the grower budget Knows expenses going into the seasonIt helps UFC bring more value to the growersIf we know ahead of time that we’ll need X number of a product – we can get those products at the best time Can a farm plan provide growers with their total cost per acre? And if so, how can this help make decisions?It can be as detailed as we want it to beWe can use it to figure out break even points and cost per bushelNeed to start looking at cost per bushel more oftenIn this industry, a lot of time, things go unplanned.  Would it be better to just “ride the wave” and not burn time planning?It’s better to be proactive vs reactiveListen to that podcast here:1.      https://www.buzzsprout.com/179750/733686-planting-profits-proactive-vs-reactiveHow do you make sure a plan is achievable and followed?  Do you need to spell out the negative impact of not following the plan?During seed order process talk about seed placementAnswer Plot – we can look at RT scores and know what it is going to cost us if we place the wrong hybrid on the wrong acre1.      Response to Population2.      Response to Nitrogen3.      Response to Corn on CornActually put a bushel value on what making tat wrong decision would be or making the impact of the right decisionAnswer Plot is 6-8 years of data on response to scoresIf you flip flop a soybean variety that one is high response to white mold and one that is high response to IDC you could lose some major yieldIt could really cost you bushels if you make a mistake…As an agronomist, I am interested in chemical, seed, fertilizer, and technology from a planning aspect.  Can these farm plans incorporate items such as fuel consumption or tillage cost to help evaluate machinery or land cost?We can incorporate as much or as little as you needCan put it into a budgetCan make tweaks and changes before season vs after the season when it’s too late“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail” is a commonly heard quote from Benjamin Franklin.  This is the truth in agriculture, if you don’t plan and execute on the plan you may place the wrong hybrid and cost yourself a bunch of yield.  What are the available tools for a grower to have their farm plan handy always?For each operation and grower, it will be different some like 1.      Printed2.      Email3.      On an Ipad 4.      The best is United Insight –
