Agronomic Research

Having conducted on-farm research for more than 30 years, Marion has captured a wealth of data that he likes to share with other farmers with the hope that it will encourage them to do their own on-farm research and better understand ways to maximize potential yields and profits. The most recently published research booklet can be found in the link below.

"I farm with my brother-in-law. While I was installing the BT Chopper Rolls he would walk by and say "That's a hell of a lot of money, they had better work." After fall harvest and tillage, I asked him what he thought. He said "That was the best money I'd ever spent." In all the years he has done fall tillage it was the first year he did NOT plug-up once."
