Crop Management Demos


Varying Planting Depth

When it comes to planting corn, how deep is deep enough and how shallow is too shallow? In this demonstration, Pioneer evaluated how corn development is affected when planted at different depths.

Uneven Plant Emergence

Why does uneven emergence sometimes happen within the same field? Common causes include planting into wet soils and planting in fields with a higher level of residue.

Hybrid Response to Plant Population

How much more yield potential exists when growers increase plant populations?

Fungicide Misapplication

Properly timing a fungicide application is critical in preventing crop injury. According to fungicide manufacturers, crop injury associated with fungicide applications has been limited. This demonstration set out to measure the potential crop injury

Rescue Nitrogen Application

When wet conditions delay planned sidedress nitrogen (N) applications as well as promote losses of previously applied N, producers must evaluate how much N remains in the soil and whether a rescue N application is needed.

Can Rescue N Boost Yield?

Fallow Syndrome in Corn

Hail Damage

In this demonstration, Pioneer simulated hail damage and evaluated the severity of crop injury.
