Tenth Anniversary
2013 Small Grain Solutions program

In this, the tenth anniversary of the Small Grain Solutions program, producers are still looking for ways to better manage their farms. Farmers must serve as experts in many parts of their business, but the issue farmers tell me they struggle with the most is marketing. During this years series of meetings in Salina, Kan.; Enid, Okla.; and Dodge City, Kan., we had the chance to share some solid market information. In addition, we were updated on the current conditions of the crop and the latest John Deere technology.

The program during the event was excellent and for those of you who weren’t in attendance, we have written a special section covering the event. High Plains Journal and John Deere are pleased to be able to offer this information to you.

Brian Ganske explains this phenomenon on page 4. ABOVE, LEFT: the tour stopped for the first time in its 10-year history this year in Enid, Okla.
