Ready for those combine wheels to start rolling in the fields? What considerations should a farmer review before revving up for harvest season? Luke Schulte, Beck’s Hybrids Field Sales Agronomist, highlights key agronomic considerations before harvest begins on farms.

 

Harvest Considerations:

I. Corn maturity and grain moisture drydown

II. Scout for weather and disease impact on fields

III. Which fields to prioritize for harvest

a. Fields not treated with a fungicide post-tassel

b. Medium to highly susceptible hybrids, especially if not treated with a fungicide

c. Nitrogen-deficient fields

d. Tar spot-infected fields
