Purdue University will be hosting an upcoming webinar entitled “Delayed Corn & Soybean Planting Decisions” hosted by Purdue’s Center for Commercial Agriculture on Thursday, May 23 at 4 p.m. (EDT).
In light of the slow planting pace and forecasts for (potentially) more rain this week, Jim Mintert, Michael Langemeier, and Purdue Extension’s corn production specialist, Bob Nielsen will focus on two decisions farmers are facing in the current planting environment. First, should farmers consider switching acres intended for corn to soybeans? Second, how does crop insurance fit into your decision making with respect to switching crops or, possibly, taking a prevented planting payment if soils remain wet and unsuitable for planting?
