RENK SEED HEADQUARTERS


We know you have a lot of things to deal with on your farm. We’re here to make sure

your seed isn’t one of them.

Renk Seed has worked closely with farmers since 1846 and our mission has always

been to take care of your seed as if it were being planted on our own farm. To do

that, we focus on delivering the best products in the market.

We’ve made significant investments in research and technology to ensure that our

products provide the best yields. What’s more, we’ve cultivated relationships with

biotech companies to deliver genetics and gene-inserted technologies that improve

the returns on your farm.

Farming has changed a lot since we started and Renk Seed has evolved along with

it. We’ve adapted to new technologies and updated our facilities to ensure that

you’re getting the highest-quality products, products that we stand behind proudly.

We’re also serious about customer service. We’ve been farming for six generations

so we’ve seen both good times and not-so-good times. What matters most is the

relationships we’ve built with our dealers and customers, because people want to

work with someone they know and trust. We aim to put great products in the hands

of our customers.

In the end, we’re here to reduce the number of things you have to worry about so you

can focus on what makes you money. Like marketing your grain, taking care of your

cows, setting your planter properly and harvesting your hay on time.

These can be challenging times. But when you partner with Renk, you know that

you’re getting a company that provides top-notch technology and expertise with the

kind of customer service that only comes with more than 170 years of experience.

You’ve got enough to worry about. Let us take care of your seed.

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 results in 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 benefi t 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 benefi t. By harvesting at a

later maturity you can gain more tonnage and not

sacrifi ce quality. Conservatively, you could gain ¾

ton per acre per year or 2.5 tons per bag per year.

That could gain you a benefi t of $375 per year.

Renk uses irrigation on our fields to ensure against drought.

ROUNDUP READY ®

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 winter hardy 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 crucial 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 on 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 midto

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.

well when frost seeded into a thinning pasture.

TIMOTHY

Fits well in clover and alfalfa mixes. Highly palatable. Horses love it.

ANNUAL RYEGRASS

Works well when seeding down with alfalfa at 3-5 lbs per acre. Very high palatability allows

more milk per acre yields. Best as a cover crop.

PERENNIAL RYEGRASS

Ideal for long term pastures. High palatability and fast recovery allows for intensive grazing

management and higher milk production.

MEADOW BROME

Quicker to establish than Smooth Brome and provides higher yields of more palatable forage,

especially in the seeding year.

SOYBEANS IN SPRING


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.

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.

Roundup Ready 2 Yield® performs

especially well under stress conditions and

is very dominant in high-yield environments.

A typical Renk Seed test plot.

SEED TREATMENT OPTIONS

PLANTING RECOMMENDATIONS

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

sand early season control of Aphids.

Contains a bacterial inoculant to give plant

ability to obtain nitrogen from atmosphere.

OTHER OPTIONS

Renk is evaluating other treatment

packages for SDS and Nematode control.

Check with your dealer to see what options

are available.

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.

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 modified 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

Out here, WEEDS DON’T STAND A CHANCE.

Because I’ve got MY WEED CONTROL— UNDER CONTROL.

THIS IS MY FIELD.

IT’S THE SYSTEM THAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE.

XTEND YOUR WEED CONTROL + XTEND YOUR YIELD

Get industry-leading weed control with up to 14 days

of soil activity on small-seeded broadleaf weeds*

and featuring VaporGrip ® Technology for a significant

reduction in volatility potential.

See your seed or ag chem dealer or visit

RoundupReadyXtend.com

*On certain small-seeded broadleaf weeds. Results may vary, depending on rainfall and soil type. Always use dicamba with traditional residual herbicides in pre-emergence and postemergence applications that have different effective sites of action, along with other Diversified Weed Management Practices including the use of glyphosate.

XtendiMax® herbicide with VaporGrip® Technology and in crop use may not be approved in all states.
