A time for boots

Posted by Russel Higgins - Weeds

Starting on Friday, .47, 1.45, .31, .96, .36 (so far); measurable rainfall on five consecutive days totaling 3.55 inches with more in the forecast. Crops are struggling in saturated soils but evaluations go on at the NIARC. Lisa Gonzini had to break out the tall boots to evaluate her herbicide applications in the weed control plots.

We are adding a Corn rootworm root rating component to our July 10th Agronomy Day. Producers and agronomists are invited to bring corn samples to the NIARC. The roots will be washed and evaluated. Following lunch a general discussion will take place allowing producers to assess their rootworm injury and learn about sustainable corn rootworm management.
