Pioneer Web forum offers exchange between growers

A new feature on the Pioneer GrowingPoint Web site offers growers a chance to review tips and suggestions from their fellow farmers. Growing Perspective serves as a forum for Pioneer customers and growers to read helpful hints and insights from their peers.

Growing Perspective showcases knowledge from Kip Cullers, Purdy, Mo., the 2006 world record holder for soybean production. Users who log on to the GrowingPoint Web site will find a section to submit questions to Cullers. He will answer the most popular inquiries and post the responses on the site on a regular basis throughout the growing season. This section also includes a video on Cullers; pictures show Cullers' management practices.

Eric Luhring, Dike, Iowa, and Brian Schaumberg, Chenoa, Ill., provide insight to management for corn after corn. Both Luhring and Schaumberg hail from areas where corn acres are expanding from the traditional “50/50” corn-soybean rotation and will offer insights on this approach to fellow growers. The corn-after-corn section features topics such as pre-planting, management practices, scouting tips and more.

Users can access this new forum by logging on to the site at, typing “forum” in the search box, then clicking the Growing Perspective link. New users will need to register on the site to obtain a username and password to access the site, or they can call (800) 233-7333 for assistance.
