With the harvest season fast approaching, it is the ideal time to look ahead and start developing plans for a successful harvest. Conducting preharvest scouting of corn can be beneficial.
With the harvest season fast approaching, it is the ideal time to look ahead and start developing plans for a successful harvest.
At this stage of the season, it’s a good time to scout fields for compromised plants that can reveal any early season stressors that may have stymied ear development and, ultimately, yield potential.
There are many challenges farmers face when it comes to corn rootworm pressure and protecting yield potential from the corn pest.
Nitrogen is a high-value nutrient necessary for corn plant growth and high grain yield potential, but high yields at harvest time do not come without an investment.
With most seed in the ground by now, it’s time to get in the fields for early season scouting to monitor the emergence and eventual growth of the crop.
With most seed in the ground by now, it’s time to get in the fields for early season scouting to monitor the emergence and early season growth of the crop.
The onset of the 2023 planting season means now is the ideal time to get ahead of weed pressure and make the right strategic decisions to help mitigate weed emergence.
Planting requires planning. Fortunately, farmers now have access to a lot of agronomic data to make informed decisions.
Challenges that can restrict yield potential will occur almost every year, but good planning can help limit the impact of those challenges. Identifying and managing the factors that suppress production on each field will help maximize corn yield potential.
As the growing season progresses to the maturity stage, it’s a good time to evaluate the crop and consider your harvest plans. Many farmers approach harvest pragmatically. For instance, they might consider the logistics of moving machinery.
