Force on trait for me is key. Regardless if it’s corn-on-corn, Force is going to go on at a full rate because of the risk that we have today. We cannot afford to take a risk with the way input costs are. You’ve got to be able to protect the root to maximize yield.

Some of my growers have been using Force since it came out. They realize the benefit of that. Growers who keep using Force have seen their yields climb. They have not hit that plateau yet and they have not seen those rootworm issues.
