Research Update (April 18, 2013)
This week was the race to plant corn trials. With heavy rain late last week and more predicted today, we had to short window to get as many trials going as possible. We did manage to get most of the corn trials in the ground. The few currently remaining are largely on hold by choice (to be intentionally planted later in the season).
Burndown work continues to progress. Several trials are underway while others are to be initiated soon (mostly those focusing on larger horseweed).
Like late last week, field work has come to a stop as rain moved into the area tonight (about an inch already with more expected before morning). Additional planting will be on hold until at least early next week.
There is still time to work in any late burndown trials that might be out there. Cotton and soybeans trials will be starting soon, with some work beginning as early as next week.
