As planting (eventually) gets under way, a little planning and moving of skids of seed can go a long way in not only increasing the efficiency of planting, but also ensuring that refuge requirements aren’t missed. Some seed variety packaging has made meeting the refuge requirements easy with the RIB (Refuge In a Bag) system, but those without it are going to require added work come planting day.

In this Corn School episode, Ken Currah, market development agronomist with PRIDE Seeds, runs through the reasons why it’s imperative you double check seed bag tags now, and offers a few ideas on how to organize skids under roof to help speed planting along once the weather decides to co-operate. A little planning now, with a reference to your field notes or past discussions with your seed dealer, will ensure refuge requirements are met and the right variety gets to the right field at the right time (once soil reaches the ideal planting temp, of course).
