This plot received normal rainfall for this area. The rain was above normal for the early season through early June, and then below normal after that. That, along with fungicide application, are likely reasons why the plot maintained good plant health.

Split Screen Summary Yield Map

The plot was planted with earlier maturities to the south and fuller maturities to the north. In general, you can see fuller-season products did well, and there was likely a disadvantage to the first entry, as it had more exposure to south wind.
