2015 Field Day

This past September, Keystone Group Ag Seeds hosted a field day with Penn State Extension where farmers could view research plots and gain some valuable knowledge. Discussion topics included soil, slug management, fungicide usage on soybeans, and an update on the hulless barley program. There was also an opportunity to learn about the population studies being done, as well as view several additional corn and soybean research plots. In addition, Keystone Group hosted a special guest, Marion Calmer from Calmer Corn Heads out of Illinois. He spoke to those attending about residue management and the function of Calmer Corn Heads products. Attendees were then given the opportunity to see Calmer products in action, as a strip of corn was harvested to demonstrate how the corn stalks and leaves were chopped up and spread in the field. Overall the field day was a success, with an awesome turn out and a good amount of valuable information presented to everyone attending.

PSU Extension Hulless Barley Trial

On June 10, Penn State Extension, in cooperation with Keystone Group Ag Seeds and Don Cotner Farms, hosted a hulless barley plot walk. This event, organized by Union County Extension agent Chris Houser, was an effort to display 27 new hulless barley lines for future use in Pennsylvania. Dr. Greg Roth was present and provided those attending with valuable knowledge regarding hulless barley management. This was considered a success, as approximately 12 producers were in attendance.
