Channel Field Check Up Series

Channel Field Check Up Series
At Channel, we strive to bring value with each visit. The best example of this is through the Channel Field Check Up Series. During key stages of the growing season, your Channel Seedsman will work with you to monitor crop progress, address any issues and provide customized recommendations. These on-site evaluations focus on the following four stages:

As plants emerge, your Channel Seedsman will perform stand counts, gauge uniformity and assess early root development.

At this time, your Channel Seedsman will scout for nutrient deficiency or disease/insect pressure and perform a root dig.

Your Channel Seedsman may recommend a fungicide, address insect damage, as well as evaluate pollination and pod set.

Getting closer to harvest, your Channel Seedsman now can estimate yield and help you develop a harvest schedule.
