Rick Williams and Rick Jarrett are partners on their Elwood, Indiana, operation, but they each work independently. Jarrett plants soybeans and takes care of the harvest, while Williams plants corn, puts on nitrogen and hauls the grain. They each make their own marketing decisions. It’s a unique relationship, but their hard work and ingenuity have made it a successful one.

Join Max Armstrong and BASF in the video series, "Plan Smart, Grow Smart" as Max visits with growers across the country and gets their inside story on the season.

You’ll learn about specific practices growers are using for the latest growing season — tried and true as well as brand new.
