2015 Plot Harvest



Area farmers in northern Iowa have started harvesting early planted corn and soybean fields of early maturities. Plot harvest is right around the corner! Here's a look at one of the soybean plot sites in northwest Iowa waiting to dry down as the different maturities reveal a mosaic of colors. The full-season test is clearly visible by the green plots on the left of the plot area while the early-season test can be seen in the 6 ranges on the right of the field.


Here's a shot of a FIRST corn test also in northwest Iowa. This site will be ready to harvest in 2-3 weeks.

It's Grow Time...

Plot planting season is well behind us now as we move into the heart of the growing season across northern Iowa. In spite of a wet spring, plant establishment is very good and plant health is excellent.We will likely see some yield separation among hybrids this year as diseases present themselves in the next few weeks due to the wet weather following planting. For now fields across northern Iowa and northeast Nebraska look pretty good!
