At Ashby Equity we are continuing a new tradition for our Co-op. This is the Ashby Equity Plot and Field Day which incorporates Seed plots, Crop Protection plots, and Management plots.  All farmers are invited to attend no matter if they are our customers or not.  These plots are planned, planted, and managed in a non-biased manner with the goal of giving all farmers wishing to attend and learn information which they can use to better plan and manage thier own fields for thier own profits.  Our goal is to vary presentations of material from year to year so 'I've seen it once' does not apply.  Please feel free to come to our field day events each year and look at the presentations, ask questions, and most importantly make suggestions as to what you would like to see incorporated into next years plot trials.
The plant information provided comes from the DSM's for each represented seed company.  Where applicable Ashby Equity Agronomists may add thier observations.
