Discovery Plot Days Underway: Management Plans, Choices, & Adaptability


Yesterday marked the first of the 2017 Discovery Plot Days; they continue today and into next week.

Kevin Carlson, Federated's senior agronomist encouraged growers to come to Discovery Plot Days and learn how to start a management plan or how to improve on current management plans.He offered this explanation as to why such plans matter.

Growers need to "start with leading genetics, then protect them with traits and a solid weed management program designed around problem weeds that is more sustainable and durable for the future. I see weed resistance as one of the most significant threats to our growers today and it comes down to management."

Come. (Tours start at 10 a.m.) Get in on the discussion. Start planning. And enjoy a free lunch following the tour.  RSVP to your Federated Agronomist.
