Field Day

The hybrids were planted 16 rows wide, each 1,000’ long along the edge of Route 309. This is the fourth year of the Farm Credit corn test plot and we’re excited to have you join in. Signs will be going up along the road this summer so you can watch the varieties grow and follow the progress. We will continue to post updates here as the growing season progresses. Check back to this page periodically for updates. If you're interested in past yield results, you can see the 2021 report here

See the charts below for the planting order of both plots.
