This is our first year with a demonstration plot in this new location. It is also our first year farming this small piece of land. I took my DJI Phantom out this afternoon to get an aerial view of the plot and saw some interesting things about the land from above. On the south end of the field you will notice a line through all the varieties where there is an marked difference on each side of it.
Viewing fields from above also gives an interesting look at dry down and field moisture that you can’t really get by walking through individual rows.
These pictures were taken today, just a day after the major wind storm we had. Kulm and the surrounding area had sustained high winds for several days that put severe stress on the crops and caused some damage. The winds were strong enough to knock metal poles over that were two feet deep into the ground!
