New brands in the seed business - Corteva, Brevant and Pioneer Seeds.

joedales's Avatar Sep 13, 2018 | 04:00 1 Hi Everyone,

I have been at Farm Shows across North America the past few weeks and one of the biggest changes in the industry has been the new Corteva combination of Dow and Dupont.

Here is a video we did with Brad at Ag In Motion asking him to explain the new Brevant brand.

Thanks,

Joe Dales

thats great more competition, should mean lower prices? Reply With Quote

Sep 13, 2018 | 11:03 7 You could buy 7444 for $465 a bag 3 years ago. Reply With Quote
Sep 13, 2018 | 17:49 8 Before long it’ll be $100 an acre. See it coming. If fertilizer gets stupid 2019 will be a lovely ass raping. Sometimes it makes you want to get off the rollercoaster. Reply With Quote

Just think how much less profitable 35-40bu/ac(and worse) canola is versus 55-60. Especially painful when both were on the same meal plan(inputs) and the poor yeilder is no fault of your own or your farming area, or your land, isn't typically in the highest yeild percentile.

What yeilds is the seed priced for?

And if we could/would all be able to successfully seed at 2 lbs/ac....seed costs would be $30-35/lb. The fuckers would steal your efficiency gains...right furrowtickler? Mark my words, it will happen.

How about a little(or maybe alot) less advertising waste and otherwise flittering away your excessive profits. Quit ratcheting up the prices for the same shit with poor insecticides and inadequate others(Lumiderm fleabeetle control rates). Reply With Quote
