WATCH the virtual plot day featuring Peter Littlejohn, Laura Johnston, Greg Stewart, and Chuck Belanger. We cover featured hybrids recommended for this area as well as the agronomy trials we are conducting here relating to planting depth, ear mould/DON, and the effect of nitrogen application when there are low populations.
