We are using a Buffalo corn planter, row spacing is 30 inches and seeding rate is approximately 24,300 seeds/acre. We are not using starter fertilizer, based on a Spring 1989 soil test. Corn seed variety is GL582 from Great Lakes Hybrids.}}

1989-05-04 Planting Great Lakes 582 corn in 30” (76 cm) rows at 25,000 plants/a (61,728 plants/ha) [T1] {{Planted the following no-till corn plots today: 3-2, 4-2, 5-2, & 6-2. Also planted all six Reps of the Conventional Corn today. This completes the corn planting on the Main Site. See May 3 for details.}}

1989-05-18 Soil Preparation {{PL: Planted the conventional tilled corn plots in the Rotation Study today. This included Rotation/Crop plot #'s 1B, 2B, & 3C. We used the Buffalo Planter with the following setup: Variety - GL599 from Great Lakes Hybrids; Population- 24,300 seeds/acre (no starter fertilizer or insecticide). We also flail-chopped cover crops on all ridge-till plots (3E, 4A) and on the no-till (5A) corn plots. This is to setback or eliminate the cover crops prior to planting. The no-till plots were sprayed earlier wth Roundup and the rye cover is dead. These plots were mowed simply to chop up the cover so the planter would work better and to eliminate the possibility of shading. The rye cover on the no-till plots was probalby about 24 inches tall when mowed.}}

1994-05-03 Planting {{PL: (Entry 2) Seeded corn on Lysimeter field with Buffalo planter. Planted Pioneer 3573 at 26,000 plants/acre in 30” rows. Used liquid starter (28-0-0) at a rate of 32 lbs N/acre. Seeded 2,4-D study with same variety and rate, except no N starter. }}

1989-05-22 Planting {{PL: Planted corn in all Ridge-till, conventional and no-till plots in Dana Barclay's Vetch mgt study. Using the Buffalo planter we planted GL599 seed at 24,300 seeds/acre. We used no starter fertilizer or rootworm insecticide. We also planted all ridge-till and no-till corn plots in the Rotation Study using the same planter setup. This included Rotation/Crop plots 3E, 4A, & 5A.}}

1989-05-26 Planting {{PL: Planted all ridge-till and no-till soybeans on the Rotation study today. Used the Buffalo planter and planted approx. 10-12 beans/foot of the variety GL2634 from Great Lakes Hybrids. We are using seed left over from last season and so planting rates are a bit higher than normal. It was too wet to plant the conventional till soybeans (#2C) today. The following rotation/Crop numbers were planted today: Ridge-till -- 1C, 3D, 4B; No-till -- 5B **We inadvertrantly planted these plots with the ridge-cleaner disks on the planter. These should have been removed and therefore some soil manipulation was performed in the rows in plots that were supposed to be no-till.}}

1989-05-30 Planting {{PL: We planted the last of the soybeans on the Rotation Study. The Rotation/Crop #2C (conventional till soybeans) were planted. It was too wet to do these plots when the other beans were planted on May 26. It was still too wet today, but they're in anyway. I did get stukc somewhat in Rep 3 and a short area, one planter swath wide, will have to be repaired and hand-planted. See May 26, 1989 for details on planting.}}
