Though this shot taken the second week of June this year near Burgessville is relatively extreme in demonstrating soil slitting and sidewall compaction it definitely shows what can happen to a grower under the pressure of a spring that is tough to manage.There are lots of fields out there that have less severity of slitting and sidewall compaction than this photo but they do have some degree of it.My concern for you as a Pioneer rep is that without conducting some field visits to bring this issue to light with certain key growers you may find yourself walking a line of defence this fall with less than happy growers experiencing disappointing yields. Remember when it gets to November its a long way back to remember what happened in May and June.
