Interesting results from the planting depth trial here; check out the harvest gallery for more information. The rest of the plot and trials were harvested at a later date, and results from that research will be available in our 2020 Agronomy Summary later this winter. Email us at info@maizex.com to receive a copy of the research summary when it is available.

Jul 22

DON triangle inoculated by two methods: 1) injection of inoculum directly into the silks and 2) misting over the silks. A second inoculation by misting will be conducted July 24.
