Late last fall we pulled the experimental 4row 1tRIPr through our west field of the Orthman Research Farm to create locations for several studies with N-P-K applied with the pictured unit. We applied for high sustainable corn production, MAP at 290lbs/acre with the Valmar fertilizer system mounted on the 4 row Orthman 1tRIPr.
It is getting more exciting for all of us that are on the research team for Orthman Manufacturing. A chance to seek sustainable high corn on corn yields that a number of growers have told us it can’t be done. I disagree from all of the experience we have had in eastern Colorado and numerous other growers that have been corn-on-corn for near 50 continuous years.
We shall see what advanced agronomics and top quality hybrids selected will do.
