Please see below for location specific information. Not all locations will be working on any given day so please read the web page carefully for your location information.

Do not forget to purchase a hydration pack for the detasseling season. With the hot dry weather a hydration pack is a must during the work day out in the corn field.


Remember to read the DAILY WORK DAY REMINDERS! (found under the Detasseling Information tab) for information on what to wear, what to bring, etc...

Plainwell and Otsego: Still not scheduled to start yet. Next week (the week of the 23rd) will be our busiest week.

Hope to have Plainwell and Otsego working this weekend or the first of next week. Please check back later for start date.


Not many acres of corn to detassel this year so will not see as many days of work this year as we had last year. Sorry! The reduction in seed acres is something we talked about at the sign-up meeting so should not be a surprise to anyone. We will give you as many days of work as we can.
