Innovation Trials GDU and Maturity Update

Aug 02, 2019

Everything is growing rapidly at the Answer Plot and Innovation Trials. GDU's (Growing Degree Units) are at 1896, which is 42 higher than average, but still 225 behind last year. The corn tasseled about a 10 days ago and is now in its reproductive stage. 

Physiological maturity typically occurs 55 to 65 days after silking or at 2700 GDU's. This means the corn at the Answer Plot should be Black Layered and mature in about 45 days or 804 GDU's. 

To check out all of the trials and demos, join us in Santiago on August 22nd!
