                  Notes from the plot host: John Kiefner

       As the 2009 plot host, my goal was to do more than just compare hybrids. New
products and practices were tested to see if yields would increase more than the cost of
application. The corn and bean plots were planted 1000 feet long. The front 500 feet of
each variety was weighed separately from the back 500’ of the same variety to see if extra
applications of crop protection products would benefit me, the grower.

       The back half (500’) of the corn plot was aerially sprayed with HEADLINE, a
fungicide. The total cost of this application was $25.00/acre. The front half, (500’) of the
corn plot was not sprayed. In most cases, the yield improved enough to cover the cost of
application. Interestingly, the test weight was almost always better and the moisture was
almost always lower where the HEADLINE was sprayed. The check was a 5-year-old
Roundup resistant variety (refuge acres). It required insecticide for rootworm control.
The lower yield of the check clearly shows how improved genetics, resistance to disease,
and insect resistance has increased our corn yields in the newer hybrids.

       The soybean plot showed enormous returns on the back (500’) vs. the front. The
back half was sprayed at R-3 stage of growth with ENDIGO, (combination of contact and
systemic insecticide) and HEADLINE (fungicide). The cost was $28.00 per acre. I was
concerned that I may have wasted my money, since a surprise rain shower of .6 inch came
2 hours after application. Of course, any rain shower this summer should not have been a
surprise. The soybeans showed some feeding from Japanese Beetles and only a minimal
amount of aphids could be found. Yet, the yield increase was substantial. I want to thank
the Hintzsche team of Rick Griesbach, Robert Gordon and Neal Gallagher for helping me
with this recommendation.

       I had a bias against growing corn on my farms this year and grew many acres of
beans on beans. Just for comparison I planted one test strip of beans, on bean stubble.
The yields were great; I saw the same increase in yields where I did this on other farms as
well.

The book this year looks different than it did in years past. You can still compare brand A to
B to C, but also compare a variety to itself, when additional products were applied. Next
year, we will repeat this to get more consistent data. You will have to decide for yourself if
this practice will return the same profits on your farm as it did in the plot.

      I want to thank the committee and the seed companies for the chance to test their
products on my farm. I am grateful for the good yields this year and wish everyone a more
normal growing season next year, and a better Bears team also.

The table on the next page shows the estimated and
actual cost of production for the 160 aces where the corn
and soy plot were planted.

Each farmer’s individual results may vary. Many have
sold or may yet sell for higher or lower prices. Cash prices
today (December 21, 2009) are corn - $3.42 and
soybeans - $9.95. The soybeans from the plot sold for a
good profit. The surplus (income) from the soybeans
helped pay for what was lost in the sale of the corn. Dry
fertilizer prices dropped greatly and yields were better
than estimated, both contributing to a good profit on
soybeans. Corn came close to making a profit until high
moisture caused drying costs to soar.

             In Memory George A. Beutel




“He was bound of the land from the day of his birth. His roots anchored deep in fertile
earth. Nurtured, sustained, by the soil he grew and his life like his furrows ran straight
and true. In faith, each spring, he planted seeds and with patience he waited to gather
the fruits of his labor home for his family!”

George was a family man and loved his occupation of farming. He loved it so much
that he became one of the strongest advocates for helping to promote Ethanol in our
area. He helped develop the Will County Corn Growers Association, and was one of
its first board members, serving on this board for over 29 years. His family hosted the
test plot four times over the years. George was the heart and soul of the Corn
Growers and he helped educate many people about the farming practices and
operations in Will County.

George was a pioneer for agriculture always looking at a new way to help improve not
only his family’s farming operation but other farmer’s operations and bottom line. He
gave so much back to our community by serving on so many boards, The Minooka
Grain Co. Board for over 30 years, the Will County Farm Bureau Board for 6 years, on
the Membership and Marketing Committee’s of the Will County Farm Bureau for over
30 years as well as many other civic and service organizations in his community.

George was our friend and a friend to many others. He touched so many lives with his
kindness, smile, and willingness to talk and make everyone feel welcomed and
wanted! As the years progressed George continued to touch people and affect their
lives and just like the seasons people turned to George for help, advice and friendship.

“Ever turning seasons, the years sped past, till the final harvest came at last.” George
you left this life doing what you loved to do and that was driving the combine bringing
in the harvest with your E-85 truck parked at the end of the field. We will miss you
dearly!
