Sponsored: If Considering Replanting After Mid-May, Better Off Keeping Stand of 20,000 Seeds/Acre

The purpose of this seven-year Practical Farm Research (PFR)® study is to evaluate corn stands to determine whether or not replant is a profitable decision, especially as the season progresses.

This study evaluates the yield performance of corn planted at 20,000 seeds/A. with sporadic spacing vs. a more uniform 34,000 seeds/A. Both planting populations were planted at various planting dates.

This study helps answer one of the most grueling decisions that farmers are forced to make some years. To replant or not to replant? The results from 2015 vary somewhat from the last seven years of data.
