Not many acres of corn to detassel in 2018 so we did not see as many days of work this year as we had in past years. Sorry! The reduction in seed acres is something we talked about at the sign-up meeting so should not have been a surprise to anyone. We gave you as many days of work as we could. We expect to have more acres of corn to detassel in 2019. See you next year.

BUS PICK-UP LOCATIONS: Plainwell - Otsego - Portage
