Corn Test Plot for 2013

Test Plot Filling 2Every year we put in our own corn test plot. We enter everything we plant in our fields plus other varieties we’re interested in growing for next year. Our direction has turned from past years back toward Double Pro varieties and applying insecticide as well as Triple Pro corn. We are rejecting Smartstax and similar super varieties with multiple root worm modes of control. With root worm resistance showing up in MN fields, not real far from us it’s time to take control and not follow the seed company mantra of more in seed technology. Bugs are adaptive and will overcome these traits in time. We chose not to apply any insecticide in our test plot this year, even on the non RW corn.

That being said, here is our lineup for the 2013 test plot.
