DEKALB, Asgrow and Deltapine Seed Brands Celebrating Agronomy Week
  • DEKALB, Asgrow and Deltapine seed brands are excited to conduct Agronomy Week which runs May 23-27, recognizing the key role of agronomists and other crop professionals in helping farmers maximize performance in their fields.
  • Throughout the week, our technical agronomists are sharing their insights and recommendations to help promote farmer success. In addition, farmers will have the opportunity to ask questions via social media to be answered by the agronomists.

  • All farmers, regardless of the seed brand they plant, are invited to participate to show appreciation for their agronomic advisers.

  • Agronomy Week will also feature a sweepstakes enabling one winning farmer and up to three guests to receive a weekend getaway to the Field of Dreams Movie Site in Dyersville, Iowa.  The site was featured in the iconic 1989 Field of Dreams baseball movie.

  • The sweepstakes highlights the fact that that professional baseball and farming share a lot in  common – a winning season requires a strategic game plan, strong teamwork and statistical  analysis.

  • For additional information, farmers can visit AgronomyWeek.com.

Recommendations for how farmers and their agronomic professionals can team up to help score a winning season.

  • First, don’t be reluctant to ask your agronomist questions. The more he or she understands your operation and your goals, the better advice they can provide.  There’s no such thing as a dumb question or one that’s not important.

  • Maintain a year-round relationship. If you’re only seeking agronomic advice occasionally or to address issues that may arise, you’re probably not taking full advantage of expertise that can help promote your success.

  • And finally, think of your agronomic relationship as a continual improvement process. The more your agronomist understands your goals, the better the opportunity for continued yield improvement and profit  growth potential.
