Biological Plot – Elmira

This is a new type of plot for us, biologicals through Andermatt, Canada. This field followed winter wheat and oats cover crop, get regular manure and has been no-till for 6 years. The plot was planted with our shop demo planter: a 6 row JD7240, with all the precision planting upgrades. We added 5 gal G24 liquid starter on the seed as well as various biological products, either mixed with the starter fertilizer or added in the hopper as with a seed lubricant. This field did not receive a fungicide. The PSNT called for nitrogen when tested at 8 leaf, so at side dress time 30 gal of UAN + ATS was applied to ensure Nitrogen was not the yield limiting factor.
