ZimmNews – September 14, 2012

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
The ZimmComm team got a break from the agriblogging highway after the Farm Progress Show. Now it’s time to get back in action. Chuck will be covering the NASCAR Nationwide Series race in Joliet, IL this weekend with the Illinois Family Farmers. There’s lots more coming up on the schedule too as we move into the fall season so we hope to see you from somewhere soon!
Our latest ZimmPoll asked the question, “What tillage practice changes will you make due to drought?”
Our poll results: Thirty-one percent said No change, continue conventional till; 35% said No change, continue conservation till; 15% said Will start conservation till (no-till, strip-till, other) on part of crop; and 19% said Will start conservation till (no-till, strip-till, other) on all of crop.
Our new ZimmPoll is now live and asks the question, “Do you plan to buy an iPhone 5?” It’s taller, thinner, lighter weight and has a bigger screen. Or do you just love your Android? Or not want a smartphone at all? What do you think?

Inci Dannenberg, Bayer CropScience, One World to Grow On Theme
