The Legend Seeds Crop Talk Moments are a weekly series throughout the summer to bring you agronomic insights from Legend Seeds agronomists on the in-season highlights of how our hybrids and varieties are performing across our footprint.
This week, Jake Andrle, Legend Sales Agronomist, was in Owatonna, MN to review the performance of LR 9999 VT2PRIB:
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?
As part of our commitment toward providing you with more choices and innovative technologies to fit your acres, we recognize that the freedom of choice matters.
The seed industry has been challenged this year with a level of seed borne diseases that haven’t been seen for many years. A long, wet harvest with many delays provided an opportunity for diseases to infect seed pods and, in some instances, to infect the seed itself.

Soybean growers from across the state were recognized for winning yields during the 2018 South Dakota Soybean Yield Contest awards ceremony on December 5th during the annual Soybean Recognition Banquet in Sioux Falls.
