Root Dig: Mark Reiman

Agronomists at the Water Utilization Learning Center in Gothenburg, Nebraska research and test different products to find the best product that performs well in drought conditions. Mark Reiman, Learning Center Agronomist, examined various root structures and found that the DEKALB® product’s deep and extensive root structure does a good job in utilizing water underneath the soil profile. He believes the deeper root system leads to a more consistent performance in drought conditions.

An extensive root system can lead to more kernels per ear, which can lead to maximized yield potential in drought conditions. To learn more about root structures of DEKALB® products, visit the Root Dig Challenge page at​​​
