GROW (Getting Rid Of Weeds) will be hosting a Farmer Forum on December 4th, 2023, at 1 p.m. ET. Listen in as three U.S. farmers explain why they decided to install seed impact mills on their combines to help manage weeds on their operations and learn how this new technology is working for them.
Bring any and all questions on how seed impact mills like the Redekop SCU, iHSD and Seed Terminator work on different combines, in different crops, and different regions of the U.S.!
