2020 Plot Descriptions

In 2020 Bio Ag Management planted two test plots to examine the response of different biological programs. Each plot was planted with eight rows treated with a different in-furrow program, and eight control rows with no treatment added. This configuration allows each treated area to be directly next to an untreated area. Both plots had no dry fertilizer applied but utilized 100 lbs/acre of fall-applied anhydrous ammonia. Applying low rates of N — and no P and K fertilizer — allows us to attempt to examine the response of biological programs alone, without a traditional fertility program.
