Who are the most profitable corn growers? The answer to this question is really quite simple, says Ken Ferrie, one of North America’s leading agronomists and crop consultants.
The most profitable corn growers are those who most effectively manage the big three crop production variables: sunlight, water, and nutrients. An independent agronomist, the Illinois-based Ferrie conducts 150 research plots annually to test and assess crop production products, technology, and management strategies. He shared his thoughts on what makes his clients most profitable at the annual SouthWest Agricultural Conference, held last week at the University of Guelph’s Ridgetown campus.
In this episode of Real Agriculture’s Corn School, Ferrie describes the characteristics of his most profitable grower clients and how they’re effectively managing to put more money in their pockets.
