The Dordt College Agriculture Department conducted 11 field trials to help answer crop producer questions. Agriculture Stewardship Center manager Mike Schouten and the Field Crop Production and Management (AGRI 350) class harvested the plots as well as collected and analyzed the data. The students in the AGRI 350 class then wrote up and presented the results, which are included below.
The field trial data also part of the broader farmer cooperator trials group, which is supported by the Iowa State University Extension. The findings are published each spring.
