Aug 7th Update

Friday, August 7th, 2015

Beans are slowly progressing along. Rain in Huron county was a welcome blessing over the weekend. Sounds like the southern part of the province is still dry. So be on the watch for spider mites. Soybean cyst nematode injury will be showing up more in the drought. Don’t assume that wilting or poor beans are a result of drought.  It could be SCN as well

Soybean pods are filling nicely. This week we have seen a slight trace of white mold staring to show up in a few fields. Aphids are still at high levels in Arthur area.  Locally, aphids are present but only random fields are at threshold. Within a few weeks the impact of aphids on beans will become less as the pods fill.  The end of August to first part of September, aphids also leave soybeans for their winter nesting grounds. So if you see more black winged aphids on leaves they will be leaving soon.
