        We have four main crop planning strategies that we share with you throughout the year.

 1. Pre-plant planning
 2. Post Plant- crop emergence and development observations
 3. Harvest planning
 4. Marketing plans.

 For corn and soybeans we are fully into the post plant strategies with crop emergence evaluations, weed control, insects and now plant health.
