FRIDAY FARM PHOTO: IL CORN FIELD TRIP

9-23-16_rodIt’s the end of another week and our office is winding down, but farmers across the country know that harvest doesn’t stop for the weekend. IL Corn understands and appreciates the work that growers put in, so we took a trip out to the fields to support IL Corn Executive Director Rodney Weinzierl. Employees and visitors had the chance to ride in the combine. First-time riders learned about combine technology, the importance of moisture percentages, and plans to test different cover crop strategies in the coming months. Although the novelty of combining has worn off for some of the well-seasoned veterans of the group, they used the one-on-one time to talk shop with Rod.
