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.
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.
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.
After a cold and wet April, it looks like early May will give few windows for growers to plant corn and make burndown applications for soybeans. In today’s report, I’ll share my recommendations of residual, preemergence herbicides that will work best with your current burndown program.
