Hi thank you for the video. Ive been to FPS in the past and it was phenomenal. Im always interested in the newest technologies and I like to compare innovations between the best competitors in the industry. I also like to take home a handful of high yield management practices that I can practically implement on a farm to make things run more efficient,  Couldnt go this year due to seed corn harvest, but ill be back.

So nice to get your message - thanks! I hadn't thought about those high-yield practice take-aways. The show is the ideal place to see those competitors and practices, all in one place. I find that when I go with intention or purpose, the benefits of attending last beyond just that day!  I'm glad to hear that you'll be back. 

Hoping that harvest continues safely, smoothly and of course productively!

You mentioned that growing up on a dairy farm your family did not go on vacations. Same for me ... but we did go to fairs and farm shows! For some/many farm families, Farm Progress Show serves as a nice getaway combined with business. Is that changing?

Here is my topic per your request ---

What are economic and other benefits ... plus obstacles, and solutions for adding another crop to diversify the corn/soybean rotation in the Midwest?

Thanks, Paul
