Crops
August 13, 2014

Crop Update – Corn – The cool weather during pollination, the rain shortly after and cool nights since have all been great. 

The one concern is the cool days.  Ideal would be nice warm sunny days – with highs in the mid to high 80s and then cool nights, much like we have been having.  With less warmth in the days, we will delay maturity and so crops may not mature until after the best drying weather is past.  If that happens, we will have wet crops and they will be slow to dry.

 

Soybean – There have been multiple reports of finding soybean aphids, but to date, only a few that have reached economic threshold.  Continue to scout until beans reach R5.5.
