On May 16th, the Iowa, Cornhusker and Cornbelt chapters met at Stine Seed Farm’s headquarters in Adel, Iowa to hear from Harry Stine, founder of Stine Seed, and David Thompson, National Marketing and Sales Director, as well as tour plots and look at equipment.

Due to the spring weather, planting was later than usual, and the group was unable to see crops in the ground. However, they were able to take a look at equipment used to plant, test, etc. and heard from David about Stine’s High Population (HP) Corn and their ever-advancing model of research.

Following the tour, attendees visited Sunrise Acres, home of Lynn Henderson, publisher of Agri Marketing magazine, for refreshments and hors d’oeuvres. The event was a great way to end our 2018-2019 programs year and was held on an all-time record for a May 16 in Iowa – 92 degrees!
