Hear from Channel Seedsman Daryl Doty of Malcolm, IA on why he think the Channel Population Optimizer is a powerful tool with many benefits.
- Utilizing the Population Optimizer helps take guesswork out of planting population decisions
- The Population Optimizer takes many different factors into consideration when determining the optimum population
What is the value of using the Channel Population Optimizer?
I really like what Channel has done with this Population Optimizer and the fact that it allows you to, A, tap into a lot of data and tie-in things like price of commodity corn, what you're paying for seed, what your yield goal is, and then the hybrid that you're looking at, and get it to spit out the optimum population under these different scenarios. But again, that is based on data that Channel has generated clear back through development of that product, so it really helps take a lot of the guesswork out of saying, "Well, I kind of think that we would be all right on this population under this environment."
