Plant counts, plant counts, plant counts! That’s what is keeping the OFN team busy these days. Characterizing plant stand across trials helps us interpret yield results at the end of the season. Late season plant counts are also taken at row spacing and population trials to assess crop competition.
Toward the end of the week, we will be establishing pea fungicide trials. These trials compare untreated strips to either a single or double fungicide application at recommended label rates. This year’s fungicides include Dyax or Cotegra for the purpose of Mycosphaerella (Ascochyta) blight control.
