Winter wheat is starting to come into head so be ready to apply your Fusarium head blight control product. On a normal year, early-seeded wheat is heading first few days of June.

Corn appears to be off to good start with all the wet weather we have been having. Some areas to the south on heavier clay have still not been able to plant. Seeing a lot of perennial sow thistle in corn fields.  Glyphosate tank mixed with Marksman or Peak works reasonably well. It’s about a 3 or 4 year process to control those stubborn patches.

Soybean growers range any where from 90 % + planted to hardly started. Early planted beans have been slow. Fields that have been planted a month will be forming their first trifoliate next week. So far weed control appears to be good. Seeing a few weeds escapes on sandier soil types. Too much rain has washed herbicide down.  Was talking to a grower who last year planted beans last few days of June and they yielded extremely well. So potential is still there.


Few fields that were planted early have thin areas where soil became tight and replant should happen if fields ever dry up.


Seeing a few Bean Leaf Beetles. They cause small holes in leaves; will have to watch their numbers as last year population exploded late in the season.


Over the next few weeks we will be in to scout fields and get seed tags as well as herbicide/fertilizer information. If anything comes up that we should be in sooner to look at your fields please let us know.


If you have not let us know your planting dates, please email or text us so we can enter in our scouting calendars.
