Anyone used becks seed?

Do the comparison yield wise with others.

Thoughts on there rewards, thinking about using them to help put up more storage.

Check their hybrids in the seed selection tool. Seems like I have seen a lot of their stuff is also sold as by a number of other brands, not like they are selling proprietary seed selections. Their research plot data is interesting to look through.

Have planted becks for a few years. They have some good hybrids. Got a welder and plasma cutter from them. Looked into getting a grain bin but was not on a high enough level so I would have had to pay some out. It would have been more expensive from them than a different brand. Might be ok if at a high enough level to get it for nothing.

Their PFR book has some good ideas to improve yield and include ROI information. They do offer a range of genetics from many different companies but are very proud of their proprietary seed treatment. I have planted some with good luck but have not had the extra cost of their seed (mostly their seed treatment) pay for me yet. I did have a buddy get a new snowmobile last year, he has been very happy with them and likes being able to get multiple lines of genetics from one source. This year I put some of their seed side by side with the same genetics from Pioneer, the Becks bags even said Pioneer on them, so I should be able to get a really good definitive answer on the Escalate seed treatment. The Becks was an extra $20 per bag. My biggest issue with Becks is their use of 130K soybean seed units vs the standard 140K units of everybody else.

Like the rewards program that they have, so far we have gotten a miller welder and plasma cutter and a new welding helmet one year, got a nice Dragonfiretools tool bench this past year. They seem to focus on quality rewards. I like the free replant policy that they have. The yields have been better than the Dekalb numbers we had side by side and slightly better than the pioneer two years ago in corn. We really choose becks mainly because of the sales rep and service we get from him. That is something that is a big deal for me.

Trash. Always a Few points wetter. Nice prizes. On my dirt, Monsanto/Bayer traits always better test weight and yield.

Check their seed count on beans you are buying 130000 seed versus everyone else is selling 140000 per unit
