The Central Illinois PFR team is looking at different planting dates through the growing season to find out which planting date gives the highest corn yield. The study will see what happens after a good stand of corn goes through a frost or freeze and how that corn comes out of that environmental event. See the results of the corn planting date study and hear how Jason discusses frost results and what it means to the different growth stages.
