All about seeds: Our fall seed edition


Combines may still be harvesting this year’s crops, but smart farmers are already thinking about next year’s planting.

That’s when seeds come into play.

Farmers often buy seed early to take advantage of a large supply and hefty discounts. The USDA’s upcoming Crop Production and World Agriculture Supply and Demand Estimates reports could impact the markets, so it’s best to have as much information at your fingertips as possible when deciding on when and what to buy.

That’s why Farm and Dairy produces special sections dedicated only to seeds.
