It’s been said that a “picture is worth a thousand words”. Really don’t have to say anything else with this picture!

This is from the no till field that I wrote about back on April 25. It was planted into following a burn down of a cereal rye cover crop. We did plant a test plot in this field, comparing our Crop Choice starter program with different mixes of our products. As you can see, there is a “HUGE” difference with the starter program vs no starter.

Program shown here:       5 gallons per acre 9-18-9-1, 1.25 gallons per acre Max 72 SRN, 1 pint per acre 9% Zinc, and 1 pint per acre of Sugar E-Boost.

By the way, the program corn plants are in the V-4 stage, while the no starter corn is behind at this point in barely the V-3 stage. This photo was taken on May 31, 2019.

If you are planting in to cover crops, or are thinking about doing so in the future, a Crop Choice Starter Program can help get your corn off to a great start, even in not so perfect growing conditions.
