I attended the annual field day at U of I's Brownstown research facility. Overall it was a very good program. Most interesting to me was the session by Emerson Nafziger. He discussed unconventional crop treatments. His bottom line is " DO GOOD COMPARISONS before using it on large fields. No such product is so 'essential' that you can't wait until you have good proof of effectiveness before extensive use." Often we hear people say they used this or that and made 200 bushel corn, but if you don't have check strips, you can't really give credit to a particular product.
Look for more tommorrow.
