INNOVATION PLOT UPDATE | MAY 23, 2019
MICK GOEDEKEN, ACS INNOVATION AGRONOMIST​

Like everyone else, we had to battle wet conditions and cold, moist soils throughout the spring of 2019. Our Norfolk, Nebraska Innovation Site was under water during the flooding in March, and our posts and frame washed away with the flood. Mother Nature has controlled our planting progress throughout the spring. As of Monday, May 20, 2019, all of our ACS Innovation sites have been planted. Fortunately able to finish planting the Norfolk site before the rain pushed us out yet again. 

We started planting this year at our new location east of Polk, Nebraska, on April 23rd and 24th. Then we moved to Cuba, Kansas, and planted that location on April 26th. We were able to plant several grower trials on and off between April 29th and May 15th. On May 16th and 17th we planted 30.5 acres of corn and 32.1 acres of soybeans at Northeast Community College (NECC) in Norfolk. The NECC location has all the trials that are at our Innovation Sites, plus new trails that we were not able to include at our other sites. 

Our team is excited to see some new trials at our Innovation sites in 2019 and look forward to sharing our data with you this fall. We spent the winter upgrading to a new planter and getting it put together. We are pleased that the planter has worked very well this season and it has been a great addition to our ability to plant more grower trials.

2018 Harvest Data

Want to know what we learned last year? The insights in our 2018 Harvest Data booklet were derived from the three ACS Innovation Sites we utilized last year. Along with the data from the trials, this book provides a brief reasoning behind the trials and the products tested with the weather conditions presented at each site during the growing season.
