SAN ANTONIO — Cedarville farmer Cory Atley recently served on a discussion panel during the BASF “Science Behind: Record Breaking Yield” event held in San Antonio prior to the start of the 2020 Commodity Classic.
Atley and other panel members David Hula of Maryland and Randy Dowdy of Georgia discussed how various practices in their farming operations could help increase crop yields and what factors affect achieving record corn and soybean yields.
Atley told the attendees that research on his farm determined that planting soybeans before corn will often help their operation increase yields and profits on the 8,000 acres they farm.
Atley also provided more details at his experience station after serving on the panel.
The Silver Celebration Commodity Classic event will be held March 4-6.
