Root Dig: Jeff Tichota

A root dig challenge has been conducted in Gothenburg, Nebraska to compare root structures of DEKALB® brand corn products with competitor products. Jeff Tichota, Technology Development Representative for Monsanto, believes the deep and extensive root structure associated with the DEKALB® products earned a good reputation for performance under drought stress.


These deep roots have the ability to absorb water far underneath the soil line when drought conditions occur. For more information on how a deep and extensive root structure can help maximize yield potential, refer to this article on asgrowanddekalb.com.
