Wheat Updates and What to Scout For

Author: Mark Apelt

Was there any effect on the wheat crop as a result of the cold temperatures from last weekend? As I have been looking at wheat fields throughout Ohio this past week, I was worried the cold temperatures might have frozen some of the developing wheat heads. I was especially concerned for areas in southern Ohio where the wheat was further along.

Fight SDS and Soybean Cyst Nematodes

Author: Alex Johnson

Over the past few weeks, I have joined a few of our Beck's customers in the field to take a look at their ILeVO® treated soybean tests. ILeVO is a new seed treatment from Bayer CropScience that is the only solution for Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) that has activity against nematodes.

Update on Escalate™ Soybean Study and Wheat Vomitoxin

Author: Alex Johnson

On June 4, we sent a video highlighting the Beck’s Escalate™ vs. Untreated Study at the London, Ohio Practical Farm Research (PFR)® site. In the video, we did an early comparison of soybean treatments, evaluating the differences between Escalate treated vs non-treated soybeans. 

This past week, we headed back out to the test plot in effort to provide you with updates on this study and the differences we are continuing to see.

Nitrogen Studies and Rapid Growth Syndrome

Author: Alex Johnson

In this week’s Agronomy Update, Beck’s sales intern Rachel Garen and I take you through some of the exciting nitrogen research studies we are conducting here at the London, OH Practical Farm Research (PFR)® site. I have also been experiencing numerous calls and made a number of field visits across the state of Ohio, which have rendered comparisons of yellow corn plants for many different reasons. One major cause of yellowing corn plants is rapid growth syndrome, which is a result of both weather and hybrid variety.

Seeding Rate, PFR Video Update, and Nitrogen Rates for Ohio

Author: Alex Johnson

Across the state of Ohio, many farmers have been done planting for at least a week or two. Unfortunately, there are others that haven't been so lucky.  Rain has been a challenge, leaving some acres of soybeans left to plant across the state. The question then becomes, how do we adjust our seeding rate when planting soybeans this late?

The Potential Effects of Hard Frost on Wheat

Author: Mark Apelt

Many areas of Ohio received record low temperatures on the morning of April 24. Temperatures dropped into the mid-20s in several areas of northern Ohio, while shattering previous lows by 5-7ºF in parts of central and southern Ohio (London for example). Many farmers may be wondering what (if any) effect will this have on their wheat crop. The extent of damage you may see will vary based on a few factors such as: the stage of growth of your wheat crop, the variety planted, maturity, planting date, planting depth, and temperature.

Let’s discuss each of these in a little more detail.

Ohio Wheat Evaluation Part 2 - Some Green, Some Not. Why?

Author: Alex Johnson

Last week I met our regional product specialist, Mark Apelt, at L & S wheat plot in Pandora, OH to revisit our initial wheat evaluation from earlier this spring. The wheat is now greened up, however, some fields that looked great when we first scouted them in late March now have parts of the field that are now dead. The question is, “why?”
