CropTalk: Continuing Education: Tar Spot

July 2022

Tar Spot (Phyllachora maydis) was one of the hottest new corn diseases to hit the US in 2015 and has continued to rear its very distinct, speckled head in subsequent years. We had major outbreaks in 2018 and again in 2021 in various parts of our marketing area. Now that it is here, and we won’t be getting rid of it any time soon, how can we best scout for it and combat this disease?

CropTalk: Irrigation Water Management

June 2022

Author: Mike Blaine

Across the Cornbelt, with very few exceptions, water availability to the growing crop is a daily topic of conversation, consideration, or concern. Too much, too little, too late, and on occasion, there has even been concern of too dry to plant. We manage water with ditches, tile, subsurface drains, pipes, pumps, and supplemental irrigation water – the most common being an overhead, center pivot irrigation. And as goes water availability, so goes root growth and, in general, nutrient availability, especially nitrogen and sulfur. To a grower with sandy or coarse soils, the ability to irrigate is the ability to raise a profitable crop.
