omething new for the tours this year is improved show trailers. Here is Tim testing out the mics and speakers.
As mentioned in previous blogs, the highlight of this year’s RFDs is the new Demonstration Farm. This is the 12th farm for the NCRS and is home to over 225 plots that will be used training and tours throughout the summer. Unlike the rest of the experiments at the NCRS, these are just for showing on the Field Days. So feel free to grab an ear or bean or something. This farm will be our starting point for the summer RFD's and there will be lots to see. The morning demonstrations tours will focus on corn and soybean fertilizer placement, nitrogen programs and root dig phosphorus comparisons on corn. While the afternoon events will be a riding tour of the replicated research plots looking at more corn and soybeans or fruits and vegetables.
