Helping farmers prep their planters before they head to the field won’t change the price of corn, but it can still put money in their pockets. Plus, it's a huge value-added service you can provide to growers that a lot of your competition won't. "Remember, every 1,000 ears per acre is worth 5 bu. to 7 bu.," says Missy Bauer, Farm Journal Associate Field Agronomist. "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."
