Farm Journal Associate Field Agronomist Missy Bauer recommends taking a couple of days yet this winter to give your planter a comprehensive check-up, for that reason.
“Every 1,000 ears per acre is worth 5 bu. to 7 bu.,” she says. “It’s pretty common to pick up several thousand ears per acre as a result of good planter setup, and that can result in significant additional revenue.”
