What Is Plus20?

When it comes to managing your corn for more yield, the most glaring problem is ‘where do I begin?’ The variables are many – temperature, planting depth, planting population, fertilizer timing, fertilizer application, sunlight, wind, nutrients, rainfall ... the list just goes on and on. And many of those variables are out of human control. So where does a person begin?

The mission of the Plus20 Corn Agronomy Club is to offer educational and agronomic assistance to growers who are interested in improving their corn yields by 20 bushels. Plus20 features two tracks: My Plus20 and Plus20 Elite

Personal Consultation for Nitrogen Hot Streak / Cold Streak

  • Nitrogen management will be critical in the next years. Through hot streaks / cold streaks, we will work with a limited number of growers to determine how much N is really necessary to create that "next bushel" on your farm.
  • Each participant will commit to creating one or more "Hot Streaks" by adding double N to a single pass and "Cold Streaks" with no N applied. Participants will share data from these streaks for analysis by the PFS agronomy team and John McGillicuddy.
  • PFS will commit to work with each participant to analyze the harvest data in order to figure the "next bushel" N requirements and make recommendations for next year's crop.
