7 Planting the wrong variety in the wrong field 75% of all varieties never perform to their potential because they are planted in the wrong field. Planting the same field more than two years in a row Non-symbiotic relationships occur between the variety and the soil, resulting in yield losses when the same germplasm is planted in the same field more than two years in a row. Basing next year’s plans on last year’s results We do not use yield monitors, test plots or side by sides to develop our cropping plan for next year. Early planning prevents Work directly with growers
