Spring field reports begin this week

DuPontFieldReports.com

It’s spring and growers are either already in fields, or soon will be, preparing soil for healthy crops, and planting seeds for a plentiful harvest.

Agronomists throughout the Midwest will post spring field reports beginning this week. Find out about spring applications, weed pressure, pest control, weather concerns and more from agronomists in the field.

This year, we’ve added reports from North Dakota, and will continue to share field stories from Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Take action now to protect yellow, uneven corn

Growers in the Cherokee, Iowa, area are worried about diseases attacking their crops. Many fields there show yellow, uneven corn. In today’s report, I’ll discuss best options for both corn and soybean growers.

Postemergence treatments fight waterhemp, cocklebur in Iowa corn and soybeans

Over the weekend, we’ve had planters running, sprayers covering acres, fertilizer spreaders topdressing urea, and tool bars putting in anhydrous ammonia. In today’s report, I’ll discuss programs to fight grasses, cocklebur, broadleaf weeds and waterhemp in corn and soybeans, as well as soybean white mold.

Wet fields may cause nitrogen loss

Soybeans in Kansas are still being planted and most corn is at the 5-7 leaf stage, with most postemergence applications completed. Although corn grew out of early nutrient deficiency symptoms, heavy rainfall across the area the end of May and beginning of June may cause nitrogen loss. In today’s report, I’ll discuss ways to scout for nitrogen deficiencies in crops.

Photos: Pictured are two wet Kansas fields. Over-saturated crops may suffer from nitrogen loss.
