Updates From the Field

We have some great new varieties to evaluate this season. Sion, Jake and Mark are working with a number of growers to plant test plots so we can get good local data on the new varieties. We worked with Dan Smith in Trumansburg to put in this plot on a hot day in May. Our May weather has been fantastic for getting the crops planted!


Thanks to all of our cooperators for working with us on these test plots. We will be posting information on plot locations and our cooperators in the near future.




It was great to see you all at our grower meetings! It has been TOO long since we've been able to get together. We hope you got some good information to help get ready for the spring planting season. Even though there is still snow on the ground warmer days are coming soon!



Mark, Jake and Siôn have been harvesting test plots locally, and Pioneer shares data with us for corn silage, grain corn and soybean plots from across the New York and New England region. You can easily check out these plot results on our website at https://www.ochsconsultingllc.com/trials. Take a look as you consider your seed purchase for the coming planting season.
