AGRIBUSINESS: Soybean Farmer Breaks Yield Record

Since 2007, the Arkansas Soybean Promotion Board created a $50,000 prize for the first farmer to grow 100 bushels per acre on just five acres.

On August 30th, Arkansas farmer Nelson Crow certified 100.82 bushels per acre.

Crow planted a Pioneer soybean variety on April 24, and claims the reason for his success is a new BASF fungicide called Priaxor, which he applied twice along with a pound of sugar in each application.
