    Tar Spot

    June 1, 2021 Matt Chapple
    By now many have heard the crop losses associated with the corn disease Tar Spot. The complex disease is made up of two fungal pathogens: Phyllachora maydis and Monographella maydis.

    Soybean Population x Fungicide

    May 31, 2021 Matt Chapple
    The purpose of this project was to demonstrate varietal response to population and genetic response to fungicide application and to determine if ROI increases when populations are increased and a fungicide is applied.

    Corn Rootworm Monitoring

    May 28, 2021 Matt Chapple

    Bt resistant CRW has resulted in measurable yield loss and has triggered an urgent call for farmers to implement management strategies regarding the utilization of Bt proteins.

    Hybrid x Population x Management Response Trial

    May 28, 2021 Neil McGregor
    Corn yield is effected at different stages throughout the growing season. Plant population is determined at planting, then ears per plant, kernels per row per ear, kernel length and kernel weight are determined throughout the growing season based on growing conditions and management.

    Hybrid Performance by Plant Population by Soil Type

    May 28, 2021 Carrie MacLean
    The objective was to compare the performance of five hybrids related to population, soil type and yield zones. The hybrids were planted in strips using a VR prescription to vary populations.

    Flex Potential of PRIDE Corn Hybrids Using "GAPS Method"

    May 28, 2021 Jean-François Foley

    Understanding the ability of a corn hybrid to flex can result in a better understanding of a hybrids yield potential in different soil types and environments, optimize variable rate seeding (VRS) recommendations and optimize ROI.

    Plant Population Field Trial

    May 28, 2021 Carrie MacLean
    Optimal planting population is influenced by a number of different factors. Typical planting populations in the area range from 30, 000 to 35, 000 seeds per acre. In this trial, five PRIDE Seeds hybrids are considered and evaluated at 4 different populations.

    Multi-Year Hybrid Screening Trials

    May 28, 2021 Matt Chapple

    Understanding the incidence and severity of disease pressure is important to differentiate tolerance of hybrids. Diverse genetics can be placed and managed to reduce risk of yield loss associated with disease pressure. A look at inbred line tolerance to various diseases

    Corn Silage Population

    May 28, 2021 Sara Meidlinger
    The purpose of this special project was to evaluate corn silage yield and quality when different hybrid types (silage specific (SS) and dual purpose (DP)) are planted at different populations.
