FIRST operates with the help and support of farmer members who host the FIRST trials on their farms. New hosts for the 2022 season are listed here.
FIRST farmer members' dedication, communication, and interest make the FIRST trials possible. FIRST hosts do not receive compensation other than the grain from harvested trials and provide all inputs for the plot according to their normal management practice. They are motivated by insights into seed performance on their farms and to benefit data-driven farm decision makers throughout the corn belt. Tremendous thanks to all of them.
