OH: Beck's Purchases Property in Ohio for Agronomic Support
16 May, 2012
Beck’s Hybrids is pleased to announce a land purchase near London, Ohio. Located east of Farm Science Review, along I-70 and U.S. 40, the new property is Beck’s first permanent location in Ohio.
“This investment is a reflection of our commitment to Ohio farmers and it will provide them with research and quality products that perform in their field environments, agronomic support and better service,” said Sonny Beck, president of Beck’s Hybrids. “The location is ideal, providing great road access which allows Beck’s to serve customer needs throughout western Ohio.”
Plans for the new property include conducting Practical Farm Research (PFR®) studies, hosting farmers for field day events, building a seed distribution facility, and providing additional agronomic support for Ohio farmers.
Beck’s PFR studies are designed with the farmer in mind. Each year, Beck’s conducts research to learn how different management practices and new technologies perform in field environments. Ohio farmers can expect to tour the PFR studies by the 2013 growing season.
“Not only will we be conducting research in the soil types that are typical for many Ohio farmers, but we will be able to deliver products faster,” said Scott Beck, vice president of Beck’s Hybrids. “We are excited to officially plant our roots of Practical Farm Research, seed distribution and agronomic support firmly in the state of Ohio.”
