Producers will have an opportunity to learn about different corn and soybean varieties as MKC takes the classroom to the field to participate in an Answer Plot® session scheduled for 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 9.
The tour is designed to provide attendees with information that explains why one product may perform differently than another and how different crop protection and seed products perform in different soil and weather conditions. Producers will also learn more about MKC’s tissue sampling program and how this information is integrated into the crop system to increase fertilizer efficiency and yields.
Located 3 miles south and 2 ¾ miles east of Inman at 1084 Arapaho Road, MKC’s Answer Plot® has a sub-surface drip irrigation system and will feature variety trials for corn and soybeans along with demonstration plots that show the differences between varieties. Dryland corn variety trials will also be showcased in a plot located across the road (south) of the Answer Plot®.
