Plots & Trials

About Plots & Trials at Sunrise Cooperative

Increasing yields is good thing, but how much does that yield increase cost per acre? Plots and trials play a vital role, and the Sunrise Precision Solutions (SPS) team is setup to handle processing many different trials. Throughout the Sunrise trade territory, the same protocol is used so when the data is collected, it is consistent for the entire cooperative. From seed variety plots to fungicide applications, the SPS team plants a wide variety of trials each year based on what is relevant to our customer-owners. These plot and trial results bring localized information to customers and aid decision making around the incorporation of products and/or management practices. Our goal is to provide our customer-owners with multiple years of data to help determine what will provide a positive ROI on the farm.
