2017 Emergence

Emergence studies were conducted throughout the 2017 growing season. Emergence of corn was assessed and documented every 12 hours. These plants were followed through to harvest and yield by each 12 hour window was calculated. These results indicate and confirm research showing the importance of uniform emergence on overall yield potential. 

56% of total yield was set within 24 hours of emergence. 

76% of total yield was set within 24 hours of emergence. 

171.5 bu/ac

91% of total yield was set within 24 hours of emergence.
