The South Dakota Corn Growers Association is pleased to offer a special look at growing conditions in central South Dakota during a field tour at an SDCGA Showplot Cooperator location.
All area producers are invited to attend a corn variety test plot sponsored by the SDCGA and hosted by Jorgensen Land & Cattle Partnership to be held near Ideal, S.D., on Aug. 27 at 2 p.m.
There are 12 hybrid companies and 34 hybrids represented in this plot. This is a tremendous opportunity to see these hybrids selected by their represented companies for this area of South Dakota. Come view the hybrids and listen to the company representatives talk about their hybrids.
The Jorgensens will have their planter on display as well and Bryan Jorgensen will give a short presentation on planter setup and fertility management.
An evening meal will be provided after the tour along with a marketing presentation by Steve Koenig from Progressive Marketing.

The SDCGA showplots are progressing well in South Dakota’s unique 2009 growing season. The plots are sure to reveal interesting results from growing conditions across the state this year. The data will be very useful as producers make planting decisions for next season.
The SDCGA is committed to providing a non-biased program with accurate and timely results. This fall as the SDCGA showplots are harvested, the results will be immediately posted on the website at www.sdcorn.org.
