Thanks so much to Jarrett Smith for his 7 trips there to plant these plots.

It was 57 days for the March 26 planting to the May 21st planting.

How many times will we plant on March 26 and get 204 bu/A?

The March planting did get froze off and had to re-grow.

It was a very fun project. I have has several questions for several miles away about this project.

Dave Hessman,
Plot Manager
