2017 Corn Report

Objective: At Kelburn Farm, we purchased a Kinze corn planter in the spring of 2017. 40 acres were planted to add corn to the crop rotation and agronomic work at the farm. The planter, which is a 15/30 planter, will be upgraded with Precision Planting parts in 2018 to be able to work more on corn agronomy and maximizing yield.
