This morning we harvested the DroughtGard side by side in Sparta. Both hybrids stood well and provided good yields. The new Channel DroughtGard variety 198-00DG VT2P out yielded the competitive product by 20.97 bushels per acre. This field has very low organic matter sandy soil and tends to show stress every growing season and this year was no exception. The yield difference was significant and there will be more yield data from other areas to evaluate the DroughtGard trait.
