CropTalk: New Players in Fungicides

June 2020

Did you know that around 10% of the total estimated corn and soybean bushels are lost yearly to various diseases? According to the Crop Protection Network, 10% has been the average yearly loss since the group of extension specialists across the country started summarizing their data at the end of each year. With that being said, the fungicide market has exploded over the last 10 to 15 years as the industry and farmers alike try to maximize bushels on the farm and fi ght off disease. One of the best parts of my job is getting to have a hand in our Practical Farm Research (PFR)®, which is a tool to help farmers make decisions on products and practices each year. As new products come onto the market, we have an opportunity with PFR to put them to the test against products that have already proven to be profitable.

CropTalk: Soybean Singulation

January 2020

For years there has been a focus on achieving the perfect “picket fence” spacing in corn fi elds. As a little girl, I was taught that you could just about fi nd a corn seed in the distance from your thumb to your middle fi nger down the row. Years of research has shown that when corn plants are not spaced perfectly, yield potential lowers. Plants that are too close to one another start to compete for sunlight, water, and nutrients, and one plant will end up dominating while the other will become the “weed.”
