GROWING FOR GENERATIONS

Renk Seed has always taken a long-term approach to selling seed. Our operation has been in existence since 1846 and six generations of

Renks have contributed to making this company run. When you have been in business this long you learn that some things are timeless.

People want performance and high quality. They also want to do business with companies that are straightforward, honest, and fair. People

want to know we care about them and will be there when they need us. At Renk, we understand these needs and we always strive to deliver.

If we ever fall short in any area, we examine what went wrong and take the necessary steps to improve.

Another thing we have learned is that change is constant. We have gone from horses and out-houses to robots and molecular breeding.

Embracing change is important for any business that wants to succeed. Take a look at our timeline for a quick snapshot of some of the

milestones we have crossed since our journey began.

We continue to be on the move and will never rest on our laurels. We are busy utilizing the newest tools in genetics and harnessing modern

computing. It is no longer okay to say this product is our best and “just plant it.” Plenty of seed companies offer some good products but

most are challenged as to where to place them for the best results. At Renk, we do a lot of testing which is fed into our proprietary software.

This gives us a higher confidence in the placement of our products.

We want to be your seed company and will continue to provide you with the best products backed by people who are there for you.

Thanks,

Alex Renk

CORN MANAGEMENT

Modern corn hybrids are selected and bred to perform even under high-stress conditions. Maximizing the quality of the environment the hybrid

is planted in and minimizing yield-robbing stresses creates a successful year. You can’t control the weather, but beyond that, there are a few

things you can have a say in. Good management quickly pays for itself in increased yield.

PRE-PLANT

FERTILITY NEEDS

Make certain that your fertility and soil pH match your yield

expectations. Test your soil to know exactly what you need

and follow the recommendations. Remember that nitrogen

requirements for corn on corn are signifi cantly higher than for

corn on rotated ground.

WAIT FOR “FIT” FIELD CONDITIONS

Research has shown that in most years earlier planted corn

will outperform later planted corn. This should give you a

desire to get the seed in as early as possible. With modern

seed treatments, soil temperature is not as big of a factor as

it once was, but having a good seed bed is a must. Excessive

soil moisture and poor soil tilth have major impacts on seed

germination, early growth and seedling health. Soil compaction

and poor seed-to-soil contact set the crop up for poor stands

and weak, late emerging plants.

REVIEW HYBRID POSITIONING INFORMATION

Make sure you have the right hybrids selected for the right

ground. Ground with limited yield potential makes it hard to

justify the more expensive traited hybrids. Corn on corn

ground usually requires hybrids with stronger roots and stalks,

along with insect protection. Some hybrids have regional

tendencies. Your Renk Seed representative is your resource in

getting the right products in the right ground. A great product

that is not positioned accurately may only perform as well as

an average product, or worse.

AT PLANTING

PLANTER AND MONITOR ADJUSTMENTS AND CALIBRATION

Spend the time and the money here for accurate, consistent

drop. An accurate population of evenly distributed seed

without doubles and skips is critical for maximum yields. Even

if no changes are necessary, it is worth peace of mind to

know that this will not be a yield bottleneck.

PLANTING DEPTH

Check your planting depth often; not just when you enter your

fi rst fi eld but every time you begin planting in a different fi eld

condition (soil type, crop rotation, tillage type, etc.). Each of

these impact the depth of seed placement. Keeping the depth

between 1.75"-2.25" is critical to a uniform distribution of

evenly growing plants, as well as keeping the root system of

the plants deep enough to be effective and strong.

CORRECT SPEED

No other way to say it. Speed kills. Planting at speeds

greater than the recommended zone for your planter causes

planter bounce, which causes uneven seed placement. It

dramatically increases the numbers of doubles and gaps;

both of which lead to unproductive or underproductive plants.

Speeding up may seem like the right thing to do as storm

clouds come looming in, but weigh the fact that 10-20 bushels

per acre yield loss is a reality and your decision could cost

you $60-$100 or more for every acre that you choose to slam

in quickly.

GROWING SEASON

SCOUT YOUR FIELDS EARLY AND OFTEN

It is hard to fi x or head off problems if you are not actively

looking for them. It is important to check for crusting, weeds,

diseases and insects starting shortly after planting and

continuing up to harvest.

CONTROL THOSE WEEDS

Just remember that weeds taller than 4" will reduce your yield.

Starting clean with a burn-down or plowed fi eld helps the corn

get ahead of the weeds and gives a good window for follow up

spraying as needed.

CONTROL FUNGAL DISEASES

Fungal diseases can be a signifi cant yield drag and need to be

scouted for. Corn on corn acres tend to have a higher rate of

incidence along with fi elds that have shown a history of

disease. Often a folial treatment can work wonders.

Remember you normally need to order fungicides and

application early.

CONTROL INSECTS

Using genetic traits to control Corn Borers, Rootworms, Ear

Worms and Western Bean Cutworms is clearly the best

insurance against damage from these yield-robbing insects.

Your Renk Seed representative can prescribe the best trait

options for your operation. Those not using traited insect

control hybrids need to spray insecticides to control

explosions in insect pest populations.

ADVANTAGE INOCULANTS

ADVANTAGE FORAGE ENHANCER

Advantage Forage Enhancer is an inoculant of bacteria and

enzymes designed to reduce dry matter loss and maintain

high quality haylage and silage. Advantage does this by rapidly

dropping pH to inhibit mold and yeast feeding. Less mold

and yeast feeding means less heating, dry matter loss and

spoilage. This preserves and helps maximize the crop with

very high quality feed. Your cows will respond with higher milk

production.

WHY ADVANTAGE FORAGE ENHANCER

IS BETTER

• Contains four strains of bacteria to work in a wide pH

and moisture range.

• Applies high level of bacteria per gram of crop 150,000

cfu/g of crop which is above the industry average level of

100,000 cfu/g of crop.

• Combines bacteria PLUS enzymes (most competitors do

not include this critical component). Enzymes help break

down some of the plant fiber to help the bacteria be more

efficient.

• Water-soluble products contain a buffering agent to keep

the solution neutral in application tank. This keeps the

bacteria viable and prevents settling in tank.

• Advantage Forage enhancer comes in a dry flowable

(FS370DF) and two water soluble (FS320WS and

FS340WS).

ADVANTAGE HMC 780B & 790B

Advantage HMC is a Buchneri-based inoculant that excels in

yeast control on feed-out in addition to quick fermentation

after harvest. Yeast control on feed-out helps to extend bunk

life with less crop thrown out due to spoilage or feeding cows

partially spoiled forage. In some cases it has been known to

reduce somatic cell count in milk. Ideal for high-moisture corn,

but does work with silage also.

ALFALFA PRODUCTS

HARVXTRA ®

HarvXtra®is reduced lignin alfalfa stacked with Roundup®

herbicide resistance. By reducing lignin 12-15%, which

is indigestible to animals, it allows the plant to put its

energy more fully into digestible portions of the plant.

The benefit of this is that as plants grow the HarvXtra

variety will be at higher quality and digestibility than a

non-HarvXtra variety at the same maturity (see graph

1). This allows for higher quality feed, wider window for

harvest or delaying harvest, increasing overall tonnage

and maintaining proper quality.

This can be a sizable benefit. By harvesting at a later

maturity you can gain more tonnage and not sacrifice

quality. Conservatively, you could gain ¾ ton per acre per

year or 2.5 tons per bag per year. That could gain you a

benefit of $375 per year.

Renk uses irrigation on its fields to ensure against drought.

ALFALFA

Renk is proud to offer Roundup Ready® alfalfa.

This technology allows for spraying Roundup

herbicide in your alfalfa stand for the ease of

use and weed control you expect from Roundup

herbicide. Using Roundup should also help keep

your stand weed-free and aid in improving overall

feed value.

RENK PREMIUM

ALFALFA PAYS!

In tough economic times it is natural to look for

areas to cut costs. Some people choose to use

cheaper seed or extend an existing stand one

more year. Unless you have some extreme

circumstance, we don’t think this is a good

choice. Good alfalfa pays for itself quickly and

rapidly. Good alfalfa takes all of 1.5 tons of hay

to pay for one bag of seed. That same bag of

seed can plant well over three acres and

produce over 20 tons in three years. Alfalfa like

our STARGOLD or SPRINGPEARL should show a

minimum of 5% more yield over most brands of

alfalfa, which should net an extra 2.5 tons or

$350 in three years. This will far outpace the

extra $100 in seed cost.

StarGold or SPRINGPEARL are the alfalfas for

those serious about getting the best return out

of their acres.

WHEN YOU CONSIDER ALFALFA,

LOOK FOR THE TOTAL PACKAGE

WINTER HARDINESS

If your fields are subject to poor snow cover, ice

sheeting and poor drainage, you should plant

a winterhardy variety. Strictly defined, winter

hardiness describes the ability to withstand the

extreme cold, temperature fluctuations, heaving

and ice sheeting common in the upper Midwest.

FORAGE QUALITY

Getting the highest quality possible from

your alfalfa crop requires proper management.

Varieties with high natural forage quality may

be harvested later without a loss of quality, while

lower quality alfalfa should be cut earlier. Higher

quality ratings give you a wider harvest window.

Alfalfa with a feed quality rating of eight or higher

can be harvested in the early flower stage vs.

mid-bud for other varieties. This results in an

increase in tonnage and no loss of quality.

DISEASE RESISTANCE

Fields with poor drainage require a stronger

disease package to maintain a quality stand

over a period of years. Select varieties for a

high score (30 is the highest possible score) to

ensure a long productive stand.

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR ALFALFA

We at Renk clearly feel we have the best alfalfa

on the market, but good management is key

to getting the highest return. Here are a few key

points to remember in raising alfalfa:

SEEDING

Alfalfa likes a firm seed bed and should be

planted very shallow, ¼” to ½” on medium and

heavy soils and ½” to 1” on sandy soil. Seeding

rate should be around 12-15 pounds per acre

(use higher rates if seedbed is in poor shape).

Direct seeding is recommended unless fodder

is needed or you are planting highly erodible

ground. Due to autotoxicity, alfalfa fields should

be out of alfalfa for at least one year before

reseeding with alfalfa.

FERTILIZER

Alfalfa performs the best when soil pH is 6.5

to 7.5. In most cases, this requires lime to

be applied at least one year before going into

the ground with alfalfa. Proper pH improves

availability of phosphorous and potassium and

increases activity of nitrogen-fixing Rhizobium.

Having adequate phosphorous the seeding year

is key for establishment. Potassium levels should

be closely monitored throughout stand life as

this nutrient likely has the most effect on overall

yield. Each ton of alfalfa removes the equivalent

of 150 pounds of 0-10-40 fertilizer. The nitrogen

needs of alfalfa should be adequately taken care

of by Rhizobium bacteria that colonize the roots

and fix nitrogen from the air.

LIFE OF STAND

When alfalfa stands fall below 40 stems per

square foot (at 6" growth), yield potential

becomes limited and no longer profitable.

Rotating the field is highly recommended at this

point.

CUTTING SCHEDULE

For the best combination of high-yield and

high-quality, first cutting should be taken at bud

stage (mid to late May). The second cutting

should be 28-33 days later or mid-bud stage.

The third cutting 38-55 days later or 25% bloom.

Leave only 1” of stubble, if possible, with your

equipment. An optional fourth cut can be taken

mid-to late-October after a killing frost, but 6” of

stubble should be left behind to help prevent a

winterkill. No cutting is recommended from

September 1 to mid-October, as this leaves

the stand vulnerable to not having enough root

reserves to weather the winter if a killing frost

comes in that time period.

AFTER HARVEST

Losses after harvest can be as high as 30%,

so following proper management is important.

Keep equipment tuned to minimize mechanical

losses and follow proper moisture guidelines,

bale hay at 18-20% and ensile at 50-70%. Silage

inoculant can be very effective in preserving

silage quality (see our Advantage information, pg.

29), especially when field drying times are under

two days.

PEST CONTROL

Weed control is very important the seeding year,

but after that, the return on spraying is less

economical. Spraying older stands does little to

change tonnage, but may improve quality based

on weed species being killed.

The main insect pest to monitor in the Midwest

is the Potato Leafhopper, which moves up from

the south and does damage to the second and

third crop. Normally, it is economically justifiable

to spray once or twice for Leafhoppers.

management, contact our office for a

complimentary management guide.

SOYBEAN TECHNOLOGIES AND PROTECTION

ROUNDUP READY 2 XTEND ® SOYBEANS

Are Genuity ® Roundup Ready 2 Yield ®

soybeans with dicamba herbicide

resistance added for improved control of

problem weeds. Effective against

glyphosate resistant weeds and hard to

control broad leafs such as ragweed,

marestail, palmer amaranth, lamsquarter

and waterhemp. It also has the additional

benefi t of having up to 14 days of residual

control to keep new weeds from

establishing.

Protect your

yield potential.

Roundup Ready 2 Yield ® soybeans have proven to increase

yield by more than 4.5 bu/a.* And to extend your yield potential

with the broadest weed control technology yet, there’s

Roundup Ready 2 Xtend TM soybeans, expected in 2016.**

For more information ASK YOUR SEED REP or go to genuity.com/RR2Y.

GENUITY ® ROUNDUP

READY 2 YIELD ® SOYBEANS

Uses the same proven Roundup resistance

gene as the original Roundup Ready ®

soybeans, but precisely placed in the

DNA to maximize positive yield expression.

Genuity ® Roundup Ready 2 Yield ® performs

especially well under stress conditions and

is very dominant in high-yield environments.

PACKAGING SIZES

Renk soybeans come packaged in either

140,000-seed paper bags or seed handler

bulk boxes. This ensures a consistent price

per acre and per 140,000 seeds. This

should help in more precise ordering of

seed.

Bulk boxes are targeted to have 6,300,000

seeds per box (45-140,000 seed units).

In cases where seed is too large, we will

put in as much seed as we can fit and

reduce the price according to the amount of

seed in box.

Renk uses color sorters to pick out seed that is not uniform in color.

SEED TREATMENT OPTIONS

Renk has two treatment options available:

BASE PACKAGE

Controls soil borne diseases. Specifi cally-

Fusarium, Rhizoctonia, Pythium, and early

season control of Phytopthora.

Controls the following major insects: Bean

Leaf Beetles, Wireworms, Seedcorn Maggot

and early season control of Aphids.

PLANTING RECOMMENDATIONS

Contains a bacterial inoculant to give plant

ability to obtain nitrogen from atmosphere.

ILEVO PACKAGE

Same as Base Package plus added

protection against Sudden Death Syndrome

and Soybean Cyst Nematodes.

Ideal depth for planting soybeans is ¾ inches. Maximum depth is 1½ inches. Soybeans

must be able to push the entire seed out of the ground. Putting the seed too deep

under less than ideal conditions can prevent the seed from doing this.

Planting population should be around 150,000 to 200,000 for narrow row planting

(15” or less). For wider rows the population should be in the 130,000 to 170,000

range. Population should be adjusted up or down based on condition of seed bed and

ability of the planter to put seeds at proper depth and spacing.

NEW SEED VERSUS BIN RUN

WHEN YOU BUY RENK SOYBEANS YOU GET SOME HUGE BENEFITS OVER USING SAVED SEEDS.

NEWEST GENETICS

To keep soybean genetics advancing in yield and to bring

new traits to the market costs a lot of money. Your purchase

of soybeans funds this costly development process. It is

estimated that genetically modifi ed soybeans increased the

national farm income by $1.56 billion. Past funding has

allowed the development of Genuity ® Roundup Ready 2

Yield ® and is funding the development of drought-resistant

soybeans among other new technologies. Everyone benefi ts

with you getting higher yielding varieties with new traits, and

we can keep our breeding work moving forward.

HIGHEST QUALITY SEED

Our growing and processing of seed revolves around giving

you pure, high germinating, weed-free seed. Bin run seed

will never match the quality of seed we can produce. Don’t

take the risk of putting seed in the ground with unknown

germination and/or purity. We also maintain a full stable of

varieties across different maturities to meet your seed needs.

WARRANTY BENEFITS

Weather and planting conditions can make even the

best seed fail. When this happens we stand behind our

soybeans. If you have stand issues after planting, we can

get you new seed at a discounted price.

NEW SEED PAYS

When you factor in all of the above, you can see a defi nite

benefi t to using new seed. University studies show a 1.2-5.9

bushel advantage. Don’t forget the hidden costs of bin run

beans: loss of grain to sell, cleaning cost, transportation/

storage costs, no warranty and higher planting rates to

offset lower germination.

PHYTOPHTHORA RESISTANCE

1A Resistant to races 1-2, 10-11, 13-18, 24

1C Resistant to races 1-3, 6-11, 13, 15, 17, 21, 23, 24

1K Resistant to races 1-11, 13-15, 17-18, 22, 24

3A Resistant to races 1-5, 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 16, 18, 23, 25

Seed containing a patented trait can only be used to plant a single commercial crop from which seed cannot be saved and replanted.

Examples of seed containing a patented trait include but are not limited to Genuity ® Roundup Ready 2 Yield ® soybeans and Roundup

Ready 2 Xtend ® soybeans. Additional information and limitations on the use of these products are provided in the Monsanto Technology

Stewardship Agreement, the Monsanto Technology Use Guide and Roundup Ready 2 Xtend ® Soybean Technology Use Guide Supplement.
