Early Planting Test


Emerson Nafziger is taking advantage of the mild weather to put some very early planting into his corn planting date research. The first round of plantings was done on March 16th. The unseasonably warm weather has pushed germination along rapidly. If the current forecasts hold, degree day accumulation suggest emergence by this Friday, March 23rd.
