By now, farmers across Ohio have heard of high oleic soybeans and the advantages they possess, but for years they have only been available for Northern Ohio farmers to plant. That will change in 2017.
Deciding to grow high oleic soybeans is a business decision, and each farmer has to decide what is best for his or her operation. Piketon, Ohio grower Dan Corcoran is on the United Soybean Board and he is going through that decision process right now.
Corcoran visits with The Ohio Ag Net’s Ty Higgins about the factors that will go in to deciding whether or not to add high oleic soybeans to his operation next year.
