Weather conditions have been very favorable and we’ve seen nearly 60 percent of all corn acres planted in less than five days. This is close to the record pace we set in 1992. Some corn is already emerging, which means postemergeence applications should start soon. In my report, I’ll make application recommendations for better yield.
Corn emerges in a field near Sheldon that was treated with DuPont™ Abundit™ Extra and Realm® Q herbicides.
Video: This Sheldon, Iowa filed is at a prime stage of growth for a postemergence application. In this video, I’ll describe the products applied to this field to provide maximum protection.
We’ve had excellent weather conditions over the last week, which has allowed growers to plant the majority of corn over northwest Iowa. Unfortunately, with the shortened planting season, many may have missed making preemergence herbicide applications. Here, I share my best recommendations for these growers.
Today, I’m standing in a field near Inwood, Iowa that was applied with a burndown herbicide on April 29th. In my report, I’ll provide burndown recommendations to help maximize the yield of your soybean acres.
With a late planting season, most growers have been focused on getting corn in the ground. However, applying preemergence herbicides to soybeans should not be overlooked, as this is the first step in battling glyphosate resistance. Today I’ll give my recommendations for balancing spring planting and weed control.
This week we’ve been receiving much-needed moisture to help ease some growers’ drought concerns. I haven’t heard of anyone planting or tilling yet, so we are in a delayed planting pattern. Earlier this week, I was in the Cherokee, Iowa area talking to a grower about weed control recommendations for corn fields with heavy moisture.
