Soybeans are just finishing up, right on pace with historical averages. Growers are reporting they’ve spotted lots of uncontrollable waterhemp in their fields as they’re combining. I’ll provide agronomic recommendations to minimize weed pressure, including waterhemp in the 2016 season, and ways you can save on your crop protection inputs for the next growing season.
2015 harvest season continue to make progress across the High Plains. Growers are reporting great yields so far. The question that’s on many of my customers’ minds is planning inputs for 2016. I’ll discuss strategies for additional input savings and how to maximize profitability from your acres.
With soybean harvest nearly complete and a perfectly-timed rain a couple of weeks ago, growers in my area are fast and furiously doing a fall burndown herbicide application. I’ll talk in depth about the importance of a fall burndown herbicide application and the importance of planning for 2016 now.
Agronomic recommendations referenced in this post include:
DuPont™ Basis® Blend herbicide
Harvest is moving a lot very quickly. Many growers are seeing their stalk quality decline with the strong winds we’re experiencing now. This will impact the harvestability and the efficiency dramatically. I’ll discuss tips for the 2016 growing season to help minimize disease risk and keep optimal stalk quality throughout the season.
I’m anticipating most corn growers will be done harvesting towards the end of October. Soon it will be time to make decisions for the 2016 growing season. I’ve heard from my customers of a 15 – 17 bu/a increase compared to their untreated checks, most attributing to a fungicide application. I’ll provide tips to increase yield bumps in 2016 in this week’s Field Report.
