Variable Rate Seeding Focus Group

Ohio State University is partnering with Michigan State University to hold three Variable Rate Seeding Focus Groups during the month of August. We are interested in learning more about how YOU make seeding rate decisions to fine-turn our research and extension outreach. Participants will be asked to fill-out a survey. Completion of the survey is not required for participation in the Focus Group, but those taking the survey will be paid $80. Additional topics include: creating seeding rate zones and ideal seeding rates within each zone and an expert panel featuring Dr. Elizabeth Hawkins. Space is limited! Register today!
