D.O.N. results for 2018

We have concluded analyzing the hybrids from our hybrid test plots. Each year we plant approximately 20 plots spread out across the trading area to show case current hybrids and some of the newer offers for next year. This year with the exceptional incidence and severity level of Gibberella Ear rots and subsequent DON levels, we decided to add a DON test for each hybrid. We missed the first two plot harvests, not realizing the extent of the infections early in the season.
