The Season can be LOST in the Second Half
4 bushels per day are LOST for every day grain fill is cut short.
The PNW has the largest gap between achieved and potential yield in the nation, which means greater yield loss than any other region. In order to close the yield gap, the same efforts that are put into the front (vegetative) half of the season must also be put into the back (reproductive) half of the season when 2 out of 3 yield components (Grains per Head and Weight per Grain) are impacted.
Watch the below videos to see how to extend grain fill, drive grains per head, and maximize yield potential...from Flag to Finish.
