With in reason does price matter more than performance?

A friend told me he doesn’t care about potential yield because every field handles seed differently. If proven yield is consistently 5-8 bushel better on beans, is it really worth saving $8-9 on a bag of beans?


We always buy the middle of the road not high and not low. Have had pretty good performance. Just curious what you all think..... maybe I am missing the boat by not going cheap.

To some degree you get better yield performance due to the genetics in the bag. Some varieties just handle variability better and will put on yield despite in field challenges.


Economically if you can do 6-8 bpa better and only pay $9 more per bag that's worth it because you only need an extra bpa yield bump to cover the cost increase whereas you can get another $40/acre in revenue.


I don't thin...
