I sample every other year in beans and sugarbeets for the next year corn crop 6" cores for P & K. I shoot for around the first week of June. I am unaware of others that do their own sampling in this area. I do see value in being able to go back within a few inches of previous cores, but for now I just zone sample knowing at least my cores are separated by my zones. It would be a wild guess on how close I am to my previous cores. I drive the entire field in swaths, usually catching the different zones and punch cores in each zone when I pass through. Since I know the fields pretty good I bet I'm not too far off from previous cores either.
