CTIC Corporate Member, Calmer Corn Heads, is one of the world's largest manufacturers of 15 and 20-inch row corn heads. In 1994, Calmer's Ag Research Center determined that there was a significant yield advantage to growing corn in 15-inch rows instead of 30-inch rows. They have done extensive testing with Case IH and Deere & Company on these new concepts. Today, Calmer Corn Heads are noted for low trash intake, lighter in weight, lower horsepower requirements, and narrower row spacings than competitor corn heads.

CTIC is leading a new effort to pilot a phosphorus load reduction market in the Western Lake Erie Basin (Maumee, Sandusky, and Cedar-Portage watersheds, see map). Growers within the indicated watersheds are now being sought to
participate in this pilot market.
