Kip Cullers is a rock star of soybean growers from Southwest Missouri. He’s been out and about in many different events and he called Cindy a little before Commodity Classic and was very excited about his most recent trip to South Africa. He said that some of the speaking events that they were attending were expecting 200 people and 400 or more would show up after traveling some distance to hear what Kip and Dupont Pioneer, BASF, and John Deere folks had to say.
He has yet to hand over the pictures of the trip but we did catch him on stage with Case IH talking about his trip. Kip says he’s really surprised that they have such a Asian Soybean Rust issue in South Africa. He says they are using the same products there we use here, it just may be under a different name. Many of the products are similar from equipment to fungicides and and it’s very interesting to see how growers from around the world continue to work together to increase productivity and become more self sufficient. Admittedly, Kip is not a big fan of the lamb they served there or the corn mush, but he feels it’s important to travel to other parts of the world and work together for the good of agriculture.
