The Art of How to Evaluate Hybrid Plots
While yield data is important when it comes to variety plots, it is only one aspect. This demo will teach the art of collecting volumes of data during the growing season, from yours and neighborhood plots. Valuable information that makes it easier to place hybrids in the right place.

Letting the Soil Work for You
Understanding the relationship between soil density, root growth, and water management. Understanding soil density is a big part of getting the soil to work for you. No matter what the crop, deep roots and free movement of capillary soil water leads to better yields. Understanding how our tillage practices affect soil density is key to deep root systems.
