Dan Kurdys, Asgrow Brand Manager with Monsanto explains that soybeans are by nature drought tolerant, and Asgrow’s Four ‘P’ system can enable growers to boost soybean yield in dry years:
“There has been a lot of drought persisting across the US and some tough conditions. Asgrow is excited to announce a greater than four bushel advantage against the competition. That is two years in a row. It speaks to the diverse germ plasam pool that we have and the ingenuity around a ready to yield trait that is in our new lines and the agronomic traits that we have in the varieties that we bring to the market.
I think what you take away from this year and the tough conditions is that soybeans have a lot of ability to compensate. It really comes down to some agronomic practices to manage that unpredictable weather that we will face. That’s where we bring in the Asgrow 4 P system.
When a grower buys an Asgrow bag, they expect performance. But they also have asked for an edge. They need a way to sustainably increase productivity every year. So we have taken our research from Monstanto and plugged it into “Plan, Plant, Protect, Perform.” Four Ps that every grower knows for their soybean process and those are easy to use, dynamic interactive categories on a website they can look to find a more intricate way of designing their soybean operation and growing process.
The number on thing is to go and talk to your dealer. They will give you the right recommendations in terms of strategically planning out your soybean production.”
