Increase yields (and profit), harvest early
Our buying stations are setup to receive your wet corn today. Not only will you get paid more for August delivered corn, you will have more to harvest. Research shows that farmers lose 8% of their yield by letting the crop dry in the field. On top of that the crop quality is drastically improved the earlier the harvest. Another benefit of harvesting the crop early is that you get to avoid bad weather. Get it out and get on with your business. Let us know if you have questions about delivering to us early, if there are no questions, trust that it makes economic sense to deliver to us in August. We hope you have a safe and profitable harvest. Example-1 and Example-2

Sorghum Clinic - Friday, Apr 22
MBgrain will be hosting a sorghum clinic in Rose Hill, NC at our main office. We will have sorghum experts presenting information on how to be successful with sorghum. Sorghum is a great fit for many farmers who might not have excellent corn land and who want the advantages it brings as part of a rotation crop. This year may specifically be a great year for sorghum since soybean seed has been harder and harder to lock up. If you would like to attend the Sorghum Clinic next Friday, Apr 22, please call Josh Goode at 910-284-2448 to register. We will meet from 9am to 12pm, and lunch will follow. Here is more information on the sorghum program we will offer this year to help make your business more successful.
