This guide will discuss and illustrate a possible scenario for conducting an effective on-farm research trial using paired-treatments in corn. Possible treatments comparisons might include: current vs. new hybrid, no starter vs. starter fertilizer, soil-incorporated vs. post-emergence applications, and before vs. after treatments. Treatments do not have to be applied at the same time or stage; one treatment might be applied early while the second is applied late.
