Top agronomic issues in our area
Here are a few issues we saw during the 2023 growing season:
Goosenecked corn: Wind damage resulted in corn that was “goosenecked”. If you notice this in your fields, row guidance on your corn head will make harvesting easier!
Lodged soybeans: With early planting and dry spring conditions, we saw some lodging in higher-fertility fields, which can result in pod loss. Planting varieties that have good standability can help reduce soybean lodging.
