New Promise and Expanding Opportunities: U.S. Grain Sorghum Production
A number of factors have combined to make grain sorghum an increasingly attractive option for growers and end-users in regions of the country that haven't seen widespread sorghum acres in generations. Demand is growing for sorghum as a locally-produced livestock feed source, an option in rotations to combat herbicide resistant weeds, a feedstock for ethanol production, and as a heat and drought tolerant cropping alternative. This new multi-client study will provide an overview of U.S. grain sorghum production, including a comprehensive benchmark of production practices, grower decision making and expectations of suppliers and service providers.
U.S. Corn & Soybean Production: Trends & Challenges
The combination of high commodity prices with high input and land costs in recent years have made corn farming a high-risk, high-reward prospect for U.S. farmers. With signs of marketplace cooling on the horizon, are farmers approaching corn and soybean production differently? How are new technologies changing how they farm? This Entira Benchmark Study will examine how top retailers and farmers in traditional corn and soybean production areas are making decisions about inputs, equipment and technologies in a changing marketplace.
Soybean Herbicide Traits: What Will Growers Need in a Complex Marketplace?
As weed resistance issues require some soybean growers to return to herbicide strategies not used since the 1990s, several companies are in the final stages of product development and regulatory reviews for additional traits — either stacked traits with the glyphosate tolerant production system, or alternatives to that system. These additional technologies will give growers new options for managing weeds and boosting productivity, but will also add several layers of complexity for growers and agribusinesses. This multi-client study is designed to provide the insights needed by retailers, distributors, and seed companies as they prepare for a new generation of technologies in soybean production.
