Be sure to tune in for episode 12 of Corn College TV to learn from the field experience of the Farm Journal agronomic team. Farm Journal Field Agronomist Ken Ferrie and Associate Field Agronomist Missy Bauer give their weekly lesson in corn production.

Bauer mixes it up with tips on crop rotation. She explains the different considerations that should be in play before a crop rotation is finalized.

Head to the field and learn where to look for lost yields at harvest time.

Then we climb into the cab. Ferrie and Bauer show how to calibrate yield monitors and why are they are such useful tools.

What are the most valuable hyrbid plots? Ferrie says there are two types: showcase plots and the plot the farmer needs—which will show how hyrbids respond to your practices.

Tune in Wednesday morning at 7:30 CST on RFD-TV. Or catch the second airing of episode on Saturday immediately following “U.S. Farm Report.”
