At the suggestion of his cousin, Steve decided to experiment with REV on his irrigated corn crop. In 2017 he planted it in-furrow at a rate of 1 quart per acre and left 24 rows or about 2.45 acres untreated.
Come harvest time, the REV-treated plants had a yield of 300.19 bushels per acre at 15% moisture. His untreated rows had a 270.9 bushels per acre yield for a difference of 29 bushels per acre.
Next year, all of Seegmiller’s irrigated corn will be treated with REV and he’s going to be testing REV on sweet corn, potatoes and melons.
