#ScoreUniformEmergence With Even Soil Moisture

Last week’s blog covered the importance of planting into the right soil temperature to achieve uniform emergence. One of the other necessities in uniform emergence is planting into even soil moisture. Think of it this way, if you want even emergence among crops, then you need even moisture throughout your planting depth. Not doing this […]

#ScoreUniformEmergence With Correct Soil Temperature

Emergence will be a strong topic in this year’s planting season. Having a uniform emergence is like having a ticket to higher yielding crops. Even a delay of 1 plant out of 6 by two leaf stages can cause yield reductions of up to 4%. The awareness is there, but understanding how to score uniform […]

How does a Growing Degree Unit and emergence impact yield?

Oftentimes we evaluate emergence by the number of plants that successfully break through the soil rather than when the plants emerge. Although the number of plants which emerge is important, the timing of emergence is a notable factor in final yield potential. Yield is improved when plants emerge within 10 GDUs of each other. A […]
