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.
