Nutrient Map to Higher Corn Yield
Once all the easy boxes have been checked for a grower chasing high yields where do they go next? AgriGold has been chasing this question by trying to determing if there is aa correlation to nutrients levels in a corn plant and final corn yield? The short answer is yes and we answered our question through a systematic tissue sampling approach. AgriGold has developed a road map that can help lead growers to finding their limiting factor of corn nutrition and we will discuss some of the key takeaways during the presentation.
I am a graduate of The Ohio State University with a degree in Agronomy. I have been helping answer growers questions and selecting high producing genetics with AgriGold for over 20 years. I have strong working knowledge of commercial production systems and have been challenged by my growers to help them find their limiting factors on their farms so they can increase yields. This challenge has allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of how a corn plant works and how to manage it for higher yields. Through my current role, I interact with agronomists and growers in all the diverse growing environments, East of the Mississippi river.
