A Different Approach to Seed Population, Hybrid Placement

You sit down at your desk and reflect on the last crop season. Then you decide which hybrids worked for each field and whether to try something new. Through discussion with an agronomist, you choose which hybrid to plant, and then you decide on variable rate.

No Perfect Corn Planting Date

It’s April 1. You have a recommended corn planting date of April 15 circled on the calendar. And if you’re not putting seeds in the ground on that day, then you feel like you’re already behind on the year’s crop. Don’t pretend you’re not guilty of this scenario — you’re a farmer; it’s just a natural instinct. And the planting date guideline is what you’ve heard from agronomists before. But you can relax, because the date on the calendar isn’t everything, says Erika Parker, Advanced Agrilytics precision agronomist in northern Illinois. You also need to consider soil conditions before planting corn and make those a priority.
