Be sure to tune in for episode 8 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.
Ferrie helps walk through the decision-making process to understand seed genetics. Join him as he gives a hands-on example of a current test plot looking at the difference between flex and fixed hybrids.
Know more about what gives your corn plants solid footing in the field. Bauer gives the details in crown root development so you can pinpoint problems in the field.
Bauer teaches how to build a baseline with agronomic recording keeping that can be used to improve your crop management. “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it,” Bauer says.
As more farmers are asking questions about narrow row corn production, Ferrie lays out the agronomic and equipment considerations to be weighed before a switch is made.
Head to the field with Bauer as she gives you the formula to estimate corn yields after pollination.
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.”
