Plot Data Page, Dougherty County, 

hosted by Carl Hobbs

 

NOTE, PROBLEM WITH THIS PLOT!

This plot will contain no available meaningful data, as it fell victim to drift from a defoliation application in a neighboring field.  While spraying the neighboring field, wind direction and speed changed near the end of the application.  Treatments 1 through 5 and 16 were severely affected, the others almost certainly somewhat affected.   Carl Hobbs and GAPAC apologize to sponsoring companies, industry, and research.  Fortunately, there are still four other locations that should provide some high quality data.
