Michigan Corn Grower Raises the Bar for Soybeans

August 1, 2011 06:00 AM

Corn receives the lion’s share of Leon Knirk’s attention on the 2,000-acre farm he and wife, Jennifer, own and operate near Quincy in south central Michigan.  Knirk says the soils in his area make it a challenge to reach the type of yields he ultimately wants to achieve. "We farm a lot of dirt and rock most guys probably wouldn’t want to farm," says Knirk, with a wry chuckle.

In the following video, Knirk provides an overview of how his soybean and corn crops are performing this season as well as what he expects to learn during the 2011 Farm Journal Soybean College.
