CLARKSDALE, MS / KENTLAND, IN (August 5, 2013) – Intensive learning, focused discussions and a firm enthusiasm for maximizing corn and soybean yields were the results experienced by nearly 150 Mid-South farmers attending AgVenture Mid-South Summer Profit Workshop held recently in Clarksdale, Mississippi. The fourth annual event engaged growers from Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas in fellowship, education and field tours.
AgVenture Mid-South Owner, Terry Dulaney said, “This was a very special event for us. It brought together a great group of some of the region’s leading corn and soybean producers. We all had the opportunity to bring some focus to our seed products, and to how through applying the latest production and management techniques throughout the year, these customers are dramatically improving yield and profitability.”
Attendees heard from AgVenture Yield Specialist and consulting agronomists about the latest production maximization techniques. Workshop breakout groups allowed customers to interact and ask specific questions on the topics presented including Plant Nutrition and Fertility, Maximum Yield Corn and Maximum Yield Soybean production.
Charlie Robinette, AgVenture Mid-South General Manager said. “We had many customers comment on the value of the agronomic information shared. They appreciated the opportunity to hear about these tools and techniques, and then to see results in action in the plots and in their own fields. We work hard to unite effective science and practical production techniques on every farm. Putting those principles to work advances every customer’s profitability potential.”
Many of the event’s attendees participate in AgVenture Mid-South’s Maximum Profit System™ and ProfiZone™ programs. Robinette said, “These customers have committed to a year-round, systems-based approach to dramatically improving yield, lowering cost per bushel and advancing overall profitability. Their results are impressive. We’ve had several break the 300 bushel per acre corn barrier last year, and more approaching that milestone this year. They do a great job of using these tools and techniques, and we committed to their continued success.”
The event also allowed the group to mark an important milestone, 100 years of Delta Agriculture for the Dulaney Family. Terry Dulaney noted, “I’m proud to have members of the third and fourth generations of our family farm here celebrating with you all. 2013 marks 100 years since Temple (TW) and Sim Dulaney settled in this area and started a century of dedicated service to Mid-South Agriculture and its people. We will continue to bring our customers quality, trust and relationships that help them succeed.”
