3 Jan 2319 min 49 sec

Last year, Kelly Garrett planned to plant more soybean acres than corn. He didn’t end up doing that, nor did he dabble more in soybean following soybean acres. Why did he change his cropping mix plans? Economics. Heading into 2023 it’s once again economics that are driving his decision to ramp up corn acres at the expense of beans — to the tune of a 65-35% split. Kelly explains the adjustments he’ll be making — from increased man power to managing residue and insecticide treatments — to boost output and profits with more corn acres in the rotation.
