Were back with another year of Fridays in the Field! Join Shalee Peters in south-central Nebraska for the first episode!
Shalee will be following Matthew Hiebner of rural Henderson, Nebraska, this growing season. Hiebner joined the family farm following college.
Hiebner primarily grows corn, mixing soybeans into the rotation to help control rootworm and other diseases. He also raises cattle.
This year, Hiebner is experimenting with relay cropping, where a second crop is planted into the cornfields.
