Market Development Summary - Iowa


TRIAL OVERVIEW

DEKALB® products are tested throughout the state in many different soil types, fertility regimens, and yield environments. These trials and plots help provide better data and placement recommendations for products. Many of these trials are captured spatially with Climate FieldView™. This allows even better data analysis by examining small sets of data points in each part of a field to evaluate product performance. Along with that, Climate FieldView allows consolidation of yield data across millions of data points to validate product performance and shape how we make recommendations to growers.

RESEARCH OBJECTIVE

The data presented here is a snapshot of three different Relative Maturity (RM) groupings from plots and fields across Iowa. These graphs are from what we call balanced summaries – which simply means these products shown are tested together in a balanced set – a true apples-to-apples comparison. This type of comparison is preferred over analyzing individual plots and gives a true picture of how products compare to each other.

  • Northern Iowa: 99 – 107RM – 18 Locations
  • Central Iowa: 104 – 108 RM – 18 Locations
  • Southern Iowa: 110 – 114 RM – 26 Locations
