Corn rootworms, which once headlined on agronomists’ and farmers’ lists of “most unwanted” pests, are making a comeback throughout the Midwest.
Short-stature corn could pay off in more ways than one for growers. “We are really excited about short corn,” said Travis Coffman, traits marketing manager for corn and regional crops for Bayer Crop Science.
By looking back through historical records, Bayer Crop Science’s carbon program is aiming to look forward — and attract interest from another sector.
New seed innovation has long dominated the row crop landscape, but it’s not the only part of production Bayer Crop Science has its eyes on. Bayer has a history of leading innovations in crop protection and that commitment is still very real in today’s climate.
The corn vegetative and early reproductive stages are a critical time for farmers. During these growth stages, problems in the field can still be remedied to keep yield potential on track.
The midseason reproductive stages in corn are a critical time for farmers. During these growth stages, yield potential can still be maintained by remedying problems in the field.
Whether or not to apply fungicide is an annual decision in crop production — and a majority of farmers choose not to.
Building on the success of the Bayer Carbon Program launched last summer, the company announced enhancements to the program, providing new opportunities for U.S. growers to participate for the 2021-2022 program season.
A farmer in west-central Indiana planted Asgrow XtendFlex soybeans for the first time April 6.
