The High Yield Corn Project

Welcome to We're a new kid on the block with a different approach to research, information dissemination, and website design. We hope you'll find the information contained in our site both useful and informative.

Great Plains Planter

Phase I for this website presents our research project entitled the "High Yield Corn Project" This "real world" research involves a mix of 4 readily available technologies. One of the technologies, pictured to your left, is the Great Plains YP-1625 planter in twin row configuration.

Valley Irrigation System

Another technology, pictured to your right, is a  Valley Center Pivot Corner Irrigation System powered by a Valtra 4-cylinder diesel engine. Rounding out the other technologies are new corn hybrids from DEKALB and selected insecticides and a fungicide from Bayer Crop Science. The link above, entitled "High Yield Project", provides a more complete statement regarding the goals of this project and more detailed information concerning the technologies involved.
