Corn Planting Complete

We started planting corn on Tuesday, April 28 when it finally warmed up and finished Thursday, May 7th.  For the most part, the conditions we had were the best we have had in years.  The last farms we planted were test plots.  They included a test of starter fertilizers, a hybrid plot with more than 40 hybrids at two populations, and a VRT multi-hybrid plot using Kinze’s multi-hybrid 4900 planter.  Most of the corn we planted is up with the first planted being up in 8 days.  Below are some links to videos of planting.
