Agronomy Update

Corn Disease Update, Yellow Soybeans, and Good Wheat Yields

Author: Mark Apelt

Corn Disease Update
Last week we reported that Gray Leaf Spot was being found in many corn fields. This week there is Northern Corn Leaf Blight (NCLB) moving into some areas, especially those areas that had a rain early last week.

Cold Temperatures
The next few days are forecast to be well below average for temperatures. Usually this time of year we are talking about heat and drought and its effect on pollination.

Soybean Update
Although soybeans appear to be improving, there are still some areas where soybeans are staying yellow. Most of this yellowing has to do with water tolerance.

Wheat Yields
Most growers in our area have harvested wheat this year and many were surprised by how good the yields were. With the colder than normal winter and warmer than normal temperatures during grain fill, why were the yields so good?
