Non-GMO Soybeans Could Mean More Value for Farmers in 2019

Farmers are already in the position of having to put thought to what seeds will be ordered for the planting in the spring - a decision that could be highly affected by tight margins.

Jonathan Kleinhan, crop production extension associate at South Dakota State University, said that the specialty market provided by non-GMO soybean varieties could help farmers save money and realize greater returns.

During a period of such difficult market conditions, the lower cost of non-GMO seeds together with the dollar per bushel premium that farmers could see from growing non-GMO soybean varieties could prove to be a significant advantage.

However, if farmers choose to plant non-GMO soybeans, experts state that weed management becomes an issue and production methods will need to be revised.
