Agronomists are finding pests, plant diseases and in some areas weather related crop damage in corn and soybean fields. Find out what they are finding in the Corn Belt states of South Dakota, Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and Indiana.
"We've found you can use most herbicides with fall seeded cereal rye with very few problems, but when you get into annual ryegrass, legumes or forage radishes, you start seeing more limitations."

Almost all postemergence soybean herbicides have a preharvest interval or a soybean developmental stage beyond which applications cannot be made specified on their respective label. Failure to observe the preharvest interval may result in herbicide residue levels in the crop in excess of established limits....More
Although complete elimination of spray drift is impossible, problems can be reduced significantly if you are aware of major factors that influence drift, and take precautions to minimize their influence on off-target movement of droplets....More
Around the Midwest, agronomists from WinField are out in corn and soybean fields, checking on crop development and looking for weeds, insects and diseases. Development varies across the Corn Belt, and some states are seeing disease and weed pressure.
Around the Midwest, agronomists from Winfield are out in corn and soybean fields, checking emergence issues and looking for weeds, insects and diseases. They're also checking for nutrient deficiency. Here are updates on what they're seeing.
The labels of most postemergence corn herbicides allow applications at various crop growth stages, but almost all product labels indicate a maximum growth stage beyond which broadcast applications should not be made. This table lists herbicides and the max corn height at which it can be applied....More
The spring of 2016 has been a battle for some Upper Midwest crop producers as they have tried to get corn and soybeans planted on a timely basis. Heavy rains over in the past couple of weeks have caused further planting delays in these regions, in addition to resulting in drown-out damage in other locations across the Upper Midwest....More
As of June 5, nearly of the 2016 corn crop had been planted across the United States. And the majority of that planted crop is out of the ground already. Soybean planting and emergence pace is running ahead of average and making good progress....More
