2021 Product and Agronomy Research (PAR) Report

BY Dairyland Seed Agronomy Team

We are pleased to present our 2021 Product and Agronomy Research (PAR) Report. Each year Dairyland Seed conducts agronomic research and demonstration plots across our marketing area. We have field trials as well as dedicated research and demonstration sites in Wabash, IN; Mt. Hope, WI; Decker and St. Johns, MI.

It is our sincere hope you glean information from this report that makes a difference in your operation. Use the information presented here and other trusted sources to make an informed decision to manage your operation to your highest level. Much of what we investigate is in direct response to questions and conversations with you, our valued seed friends. As always, feel free to contact your local Dairyland Seed Dealer, District Sales Manager, Regional Sales Manager or Regional Agronomist to further discuss our findings.
