This past week, crop dusters were busy in the area applying
fungicides to corn that recently tasseled. Temperatures were in the mid 90s with high humidity, which
felt very uncomfortable to us, but the corn and beans for the most part seemed
to like it and made good progress.
On Saturday evening, we had storms come through the area
leaving from half-an-inch to 5-inch totals. Where the larger amounts came down,
there were areas of flash flooding and also winds that caused some green snap in
Pest and disease watch has still been very quiet. So far,
the only issue that has been noticed is isolated occurrence of frogeye leaf spot
in beans and some grey leaf spot in certain varieties of corn. Activities have
been mostly post-spraying weed control in soybeans. Have a great week.
