Is Absolutely In Your Control
By Jeff Shaner | AgVenture Seed and Technology Manager
Last fall’s wet harvest conditions exposed the soybean seed crop to two key diseases. Phomopsis seed decay (diaporthe longicolla) attacks soybean seeds that are shriveled or have a cracked seed coat, often appearing as a chalky white covering on the seed.
Herbicide resistance continues to become an ever more challenging aspect of crop production. Currently, fifteen weed species in North America are confirmed glyphosate resistant.
Once alfalfa plants have 3-4 inches of new growth, stand health may be assessed by randomly selecting sites throughout the field. You want to see a minimum of 4-5 alfalfa plants per foot.
Early weed competition in soybeans can reduce yields where glyphosate is not applied early.
That’s the answer to how long it takes for corn to emerge; in other words, it depends.
When weather conditions turn cold and wet, young corn plants can become stressed. That impacts their ability to take up nutrients.
