Thank you for visiting the DuPont Field Reports website, sponsored by DuPont Crop Protection. This site contains daily corn and soybean updates reported by agronomists during the 2012 spring planting and fall harvest seasons. The updates concluded with the end of harvest during October 2012. For the remainder of the year, your DuPont representative or retailer is available to help you with any crop protection concerns. Look for new updates starting in early spring 2013.
Due to the heavy rainfall, harvest has come to a screeching halt. The moisture has also caused the majority of fields in my territory to be taken over by winter annuals. To combat this problem, all farmers should plan to use a fall-applied residual herbicide to give fields protection — in case we happen to have another wet planting season next spring. In today’s report, I’ll tell you more about why your fall application should include a residual herbicide.
