Follow Kip Cullers, a Purdy, Mo., farmer known for his bin-busting soybean yields, Farm Journal Field Agronomist Ken Ferrie and Farm Journal Machinery Editor Margy Fischer as they travel to Brazil to learn more about the country's soybean production.
Kip Cullers is well-known for his world-record soybean yields, and many farmers ask him for yield tips. His response is usually a question in return: "What have you tried different in your soybeans lately." Cullers is a constant experimenter and pushing the bean yield threshold by pushing the conventional thinking to soybean production.
One of his greatest tools in his quest for higher yields is the travel he does in the winter. He journeys across Brazil more than a dozen times when he isn't growing his own crop in Missouri. He partners with farmers and cooperatives to run field trials to push yields in corn, soybeans and sugar cane. You can listen to some of his greatest lessons learned during these travels below:
