These photos came from a corn plot on Randy W’s field north of Waverly, Nebraska. In this corn plot, Wade Phillips asked Randy to do a side by side with a treatment of Tripidity versus an untreated check. Last year we saw that when a producer used Tripidity, the corn had even emergence, a more uniform ear placement and reached a higher yield potential.
As you can see from this photo the corn that was treated with Tripidity has a more developed root system and the plant is producing chlorophyll (it has emerged and is capturing sunlight). The untreated corn has not emerged from the soil at this time and had to be dug up to show the development of the corn.
Here is a close-up of the corn that was treated with Tripidity (on the left) versus the untreated check (on the right). The corn that was treated with Tripidity has emerged and the other has not at this time.
This is a photo showing the emergence of the corn treated with Tripidity. Each flag represents a corn seedling that has emerged from the soil. We flagged three rows
This photo shows the amount of seedlings we found in the untreated check. We only found one seedling in the three rows we looked in.
If you have used Tripidity in your fields and you have it next to an untreated check, now is the time to check out the emergence and do a flag test of your own.
