Corn School: 'Aha moments' in your fields

Episodes:

Have you ever spotted an area of vigourous plants in your cornfield and wondered why they’re a growth stage or two ahead of neighbouring plants?

There are plenty of agronomic insights we can glean from our fields to improve farm management and yield, says AGRIS Co-operative agronomist Dale Cowan. Quite often the opportunity is right before our eyes. I this episode of RealAgriculture Corn School, Cowan walks to the edge of a corn field that has recently had a portion of the tree windbreak removed. The corn in this area is vastly superior compared to the rest of the field.

“We can learn a lot from these four rows of corn,” says Cowan. If growers investigate these areas there are likely ‘aha moments’ that will help them better manage the entire field.
