Busy days!

Posted by Russel Higgins -


Planting took place almost from sunup to sundown at the NIARC yesterday. Our first soybean went into the ground and several crews from campus traveled north to plant plots. Darin Joos and his team connected with corn variety testing started last night and is currently on site finishing their plot work. Ron Estes and Nick Tinsley from entomology put in a long day, planting their insecticide and Bt evaluation trials and finishing up in the dark near 8:30 pm before loading up for the return trip to campus.
