This week, the Red River Farm Network team traveled to Timber Coulee Seed at Lisbon, North Dakota for the Pioneer Agronomy Update. “With a late start, farmers are focused on the getting the crop in the ground. I am getting some questions on maturity,” says Pioneer field representative JJ Jaehning. ” The general rule of thumb is to stay with the maturity for your region until about May 21 to 25. In south east North Dakota, 95 to 97 day hybrids are common. We recommend going three to five maturity points below that mark if a switch is needed.” Watch the Facebook video here.
