Description

Uniform emergence and development of corn and soybean seedlings is key to maximize farmer profitability. In corn, poor stand and plant-to-plant variability lower yield potential as smaller plants compete with their larger neighbors for resources. With the dramatic increase in soybean seed costs within the past decade, farmers now plant fewer seeds per acre and thus depend on improved emergence and better stand establishment to achieve an even stand and maximize yield potential.
