Rained out

Posted by Russel Higgins -

It has been weeks since we had enough rainfall to keep us out of the field, but that is the case on this last day of April. Despite early planting on several of our plots, the only crop currently emerged is our March 29th planted corn. With our recent moisture and the upturn in temperatures expected later this week we expect this to change. We continue to catch Black cutworm moths in our traps at the NIARC and encourage producers to continue to scout their emerging corn fields. This early scouting can also help catching early weeds including Giant ragweed.
