Legend Seeds is pleased to share a biologicals update from YieldMaster Solutions, LLC. See below some interesting findings following emergence observations and what to look for to know if biologicals are working in your fields this season!

The excitement for spring is around us. At Legend Seeds, there are big things happening within our Research Team and our in-house research program, the Legend Elite Advancement Project (L.E.A.P). We are extra excited this year as we will be utilizing our newest investment, a Seed Research Equipment Solutions (SRES) planter. This SRES planter is an eight row planter which allows us to expand our plots and plant four rows of two hybrids at the same time.

As a regional seed leader, Legend Seeds recognizes the importance of continually offering top quality products, services, and innovations that will provide growers with more profit potential than they can get anywhere else. As of August 1, Legend Seeds has embarked on its 30th selling season in the seed industry serving farmers and dealers across a seven-state footprint. This was a year of change and transition in the seed industry. However, at Legend, its newly formed Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) has created a stronghold in ensuring the certainty, stability, and the growth of Legend as an independent seed company for the future, with a focus on providing growers and dealers the freedom of choice.

At Legend Seeds, we fully recognize, honor and support our employees and want them to succeed. We appreciate the values, leadership and unique skills that service men and women bring to the workforce. On September 30th, Legend Seeds President, Tim Bratland was honored as a Patriotic Employer for the United States National Guard and Reserve Force. The Patriot Award reflects the efforts made to support citizen warriors through a wide-range of measures including flexible schedules, time off prior to and after deployment, caring for families, and granting leaves of absence if needed.

Because of the unique circumstances that we are in this year, Legend Seeds is working hard to provide cropping options to meet your needs. Cover crops can be a good way to take advantage of an otherwise unfortunate situation. Benefits accomplished with these cover crops will put farmers at an advantage for the following cash crop and for years to come. As the demand for traditional cover crop seed rises and becomes hard to find, there are other crops that may be classified as a cover crop and may be planted on your prevent plant acres.

Due to the excessive rain and saturated soils that many farmers are experiencing, our typical crops are not getting planted, leaving farmers to develop alternative planting plans. Many farmers are taking prevented planting designation on acres that they could not get planted. After taking prevent plant, what do you do with these fields?

Everyone is eager to be out in the fields and planting this time of year. However, unseasonably cold temperatures and wet conditions have been the theme for much of our area. When we think about planting soybeans, this is one crop that we should probably consider waiting to plant until conditions are more favorable.

Legend Seeds is pleased to announce that John Squire, Ph.D. has joined the Legend Seeds team as its Legend forage specialist.
