¹ The Pioneer Crop Management Research Awards (CMRA) Program provides funds for agronomic and precision farming studies by university and USDA cooperators throughout North America. The awards extend for up to four years and address crop management information needs of Pioneer agronomists, sales professionals and customers. This Field Facts research update was adapted from the final report submitted by Dr. Jeff Coulter, University of Minnesota, Department of Agronomy and Plant Genetics, for his CMRA project entitled, "Corn Response to Row Width, Plant Population, and Hybrid Maturity in the Far-Northern Corn Belt." This project was sponsored by Pioneer's Northern Business Unit and coordinated by Pioneer Agronomy Research Manager, Barry Anderson. Portions of this study are also shown in other reports by Coulter and Severson (2011).
