Application of experimental and conventional fertilizers and biologicals for effects on nutrient and soil health needs of crops.
Soil measurements for product effects on movement from site of application, correction of nutrient content and other field and environmental effects.
In-crop data collections to measure treatment effects on plant growth.
Grain yield measurements with scaled grain cart. Coming in 2020 will be a combine with Harvest Master system for increased yield measurement accuracy.
Post Emergence Applications
Foliar application of nutrients and crop protection products to test plots.
Spray nozzle technology evaluations for penetration into crop canopy.
Use of dye for marking fertilizer placement relative to seed through planter application.
Foliar and ground application of nutrients and crop protection on the high density apple orchard.
Seed Variety Trials
Planting seed variety plots for demonstrations and/or yield testing
Broadcast Dry Fertilizer Application In Plots
Accurate broadcast application of dry fertilizers to plots with air spreader. It is calibrated for various dry fertilizer types.
In-Crop Dry Fertilizer Band Application
In-crop applications of dry fertilizers in plots with air applicator.
Topdress Nutrient Applications
Spring applications of nitrogen and other nutrients to winter wheat plots. Can also apply early season crop protection. Tram lines are set to control wheel traffic through the plots.
