CropTalk: The Sower

July 2021

CropTalk: A Little XTRA for Forage and Silage

July 2021

Author: Matt Lawson

How many of us pay for insurance on the homes in which we live? Ever wonder if it’s worth it? While this article is about silage inoculants and not about homeowner’s insurance, I often get a very similar question when discussing the use of silage and forage inoculants: ‘How do I know if I am getting a return on investment when I apply that inoculant?’

CropTalk: Soybean Podworm: A Very Non-Picky Eater

July 2021

Author: Scott Dickey

The soybean Podworm (SPW) (Helicoverpa zea) feeds on many different grain and vegetable crops in much of the United States. SPW has many different names depending on which crop it is feeding on. These names include cotton bollworm, tomato fruitworm, sorghum headworm, and most commonly corn earworm. Often SPW is a soybean pest of the southern US; however, depending on several factors, this species can become a problem in soybean fields further north and east, making its presence felt in areas where it isn’t usually an economic pest.

CropTalk: Fungicide Timing in Soybeans

July 2021

When appropriately timed, fungicide applications in soybeans provide one of the most consistent returns of all the things tested through Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR)®, even in the absence of significant foliar disease pressure. Beck’s 4-year, multi-location research suggests that the optimal timing is the R3 reproductive stage, which is identified by having a 3/16 in. pod at one of the uppermost four nodes.

CropTalk: The Power in Pollination

June 2021

A key factor in yield is pollination success. Across the Cornbelt, field corn enters the critical period of pollination from late June through the end of July. A corn plant is monoecious, which means it contains both male and female flowers on the same plant. The female flower is called the ear and contains the ovules and silks. The male flower is called the tassel and sheds pollen. Many understand the female flower and its importance in yield, but let’s dive deeper into the male flower.
