Crop and Weather Update - August 10

This week Doug Cooper interviews Iowa State University Extension plant pathologist Daren Mueller, integrated pest management specialist Rich Pope, and soybean agronomist Palle Pedersen.

Mueller says wind- and hail-damaged crops may develop disease problems this year, however much of the damage may be too severe for fungicide application.

Pope relates Extension field agronomists reports of crop damage done across the center of the state in Sunday hail and wind storms.

Pedersen encourages growers to continue monitoring insects and managing when they reach threshold numbers.
