Figure 1. A Box & Whisker chart depicting a 2-year trend of average corn yield in response of planting population. The boxes represent where 75% of the data lie and the error bars represent the outlying 25% of the data. The horizontal black line marks 250 bu/acre which is the yield environment of the research site. The black arrows are risk factors that show the percentage of corn products that yield below or above the 250 bu/acre mark.
Figure 2. Three typical average corn yield response curves to planting population. Each corn product falls in one of these categories and knowing the response curve helps with seeding rate decisions.
Figure 3. Examples of corn products with fixed and flex ear population response curves.
Figure 4. A seeding rate prescription for a corn field using the advanced scripting options from Climate FieldView™ Pro. The tool helps minimize risk by tailoring seeding rates to suite the yield environment.
