johnny skeptical - 3/13/2019 19:40 All corn used to be “conventional” and there was a lot of corn on corn raised in those days. Insecticide in the furrow, insecticide at tassel will get most of the problem pests.
Lot of younguns don't know anything about this world you talk of when there were no traits.
Many would have to quit farming if they had to fill individual boxes with bags of seed AND insecticide boxes with bags of insecticide.
and even alittle further back bagged dry fertilizer. It was a big day on the ranch when dad bought a hydraulic auger for the ol’ Dakon wagon for the starter fertilizer.
I am a tweener on some of these. Also here some use bagged fert yet. Small acres. But what I think is funny is I have dropped fert from planter all together. Hahaha.
And yes we had some Con corn on corn for 30 yrs and another piece for 17 (well dad did)
And NWPA so pretty close to original post location
