Hydro, Okla. Muti-Crop Field Day a Success

Thu, 09 Sep 2021 17:35:10 CDT

Hydro, Okla. Muti-Crop Field Day a Success Radio Oklahoma’s own KC Sheperd participated in today’s free multi-crop field day in Hydro, Okla. The event was made possible by local farmers, but cotton, corn, peanuts and soybeans were the stars of the show.

A local, fourth-generation farmer and on-farm researcher, Merlin Schantz of Schantz Farms acted as host and tour guide for the event.

“We had some seed variety trials in cotton that we looked at (today),” Schantz said. “We also looked at some herbicide and fungicide trials in peanuts and then in several places, we looked at fertility studies that we are working on.”

Schantz said western Oklahoma has had a fruitful summer, with good rains and cooperative weather.

The day started at 8:30 a.m. with donuts and coffee, followed by a bus tour of the fields at 9 a.m. Guest speakers included Shane Osborne, Bruce Stewart and Karl Stutzman.

As a fourth-generation farmer, Schantz said he hopes agriculture will stay viable in western Oklahoma for generations to come.
