S. ILLINOIS - SEAN NETTLETON, CCA

The Finish Line is Near...

Published on Wednesday, August 31, 2016

As August rolls around, we can start to see the finish line on the 2016 crop season. It started wet in many areas of southern Illinois, and then it turned hot and dry. Many areas received a much needed cool period and rain event around July 4th, which helped with the pollination of early planted corn. With that said, we aren’t done quite yet! Fungicide applications to corn and soybeans are still on the agenda, and we must not forget about late-season scouting for insects such as European as corn borer (ECB), especially on those non-GMO corn acres. ECB can be a major yield-limiting pest, with one borer per planting costing up to 7 Bu./A. if unmanaged!

Also, don’t forget to make your plans to attend Becknology™ Days on August 25 to 27 at Beck’s Headquarters in Atlanta, IN. This is a great opportunity to come and learn as well as enjoy some fellowship before we head into the fall season. As always, be safe out there!
