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 […]

Uniform emergence is one key to maximizing corn yields. Learn how to conduct an emergence test.
Based on a University of Minnesota study, uniform emergence can improve yield from five to nine percent. We recommend emergence testing as an opportunity for you to evaluate current practices.
