Crop Update and Second Chances

Drilled Sesame in the Coastal Bend

In the Coastal Bend, the first drilled sesame planted on 7.5 inches is being done by Allen and Ross Moench. They are using a 15ft John Deere 1590.  Flute meter gates are open 3/16th of inch.


This picture was taken 6 days ago in the evening showing early bud forms in the most developed sesame of the year.  As of today, the earliest planted sesame is now flowering.

For an update on the double row sesame by Ray Jones, the stand is excellent and as far as plant health, very few crops before have had this healthy of color this early in development. We are excited to watch this one develop.

Sometimes the crop just needs a second chance

Our first blog of this year was Frank Machac planting near McCook, TX.  It doesn't often rain there, but this particular field experienced flash flood rains just before emergence.  Sometimes, the crop will make it, but often replanting is the best option.  Frank took advantage of Sesaco's replant policy - replant seed is half price - and he is back in the game with a good stand of sesame.

As always, please review our latest Producers Guide and find your closest source of planting seed and marketing agreements here.
