On-Farm Corn and Soybean Planter Demonstration Trials

Authors: , , ,


Corn and soybean planting is one of the most critical operations of the season. Operating the planter with the proper soil conditions for proper placement of the seed to obtain the correct seed-soil contact is important to optimize yields and reduce problems later in the season with plant and root growth. Timely planting also is important for optimum yields. The objective of these trials was to investigate the effect of various planter operations on corn and soybean yield.
