Trying New Things

Farmers in the modern day world have a chance to prove what works on their farm better than ever before. Should you buy seed treated with fungicide, insecticide or both? Try it and see. If you sense is that these things make you money, then go for it, but6 leave a check strip. On the other hand, if you just want to try something small scale then do it, but make sure there is a control strip. Don't try to check one field against another. Do it side by side. Plant your strips so that you can just take your yield monitor data and use it for comparison.

Your results may not be publishable in a professional journal, but it at least tells you what is going on on your farm. That is what matters most.

Overnight rain was only a trace, so we are hoping to work in the field tomorrow.
