Drought has impacted farmers across the Corn Belt the last several years. As historical weather patterns show the likelihood of dry conditions in future growing seasons, it’s important for you to plan ahead and protect your return on investment.

“It’s more than just picking the right hybrid or knowing when to turn the pivot on,” says Ron Geis, market development specialist, Corteva Agriscience. “It really takes a whole-farm approach to maximize productivity in the dry weather conditions we’ve been facing.”

Watch this video to hear Andrew Luzum, Nutrient Maximizer strategic account manager; Jon Olsen, Pioneer agronomist, and Geis discuss the impact of 2023 weather conditions and how to create a total-acre drought management plan.
