In-furrow Starter Fertilizer Trial
Each 2.5 gallon jug represents a different in-furrow starter treatment
This replicated trial consists of 24 different treatments, including various fertilizer blends, soil microorganisms (bacteria, fungal species and mycorrhizae) and insecticides. The 4 row planter allows for precision seed placement, as each row unit has its own motor. Monitors in the tractor control the planter and fertilizer rates.

Harvest Never Ends
The path to success starts from fundamentals, knowledge and experience
This serves as a reminder of how we did things in the past and that by acknowledging the fundamentals we can move forward in our self-development. It proves that even though things may be good we can and should always be striving for better as a person, professional and CCA.

Captured are the water droplets on a growing corn plant.
