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.
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.
Qrome® corn hybrids are the result of new technology that unlocks outstanding yield potential. It’s a factor of combining industry-leading germplasm with strong, dual-action defensive traits, and seed treatments.
The efficacy of fungicides in controlling corn diseases is a topic that has been widely debated.
Tar spot is a fungal leaf disease that infects corn leaves and causes lodging and yield losses. It has made an abrupt entrance to Midwest and Florida cornfields in the past couple of years.
AgVenture is pleased to offer Enlist E3™ soybeans in its lineup. One of the most advanced technologies in soybeans today, Enlist E3 soybeans offer tolerance to three herbicides: 2,4-D choline in Enlist™ herbicides, glyphosate and glufosinate.
While residue prevents erosion and provides organic matter, it also holds moisture and prevents optimal drying and warming of the seedbed.
In this issue of Product / Technology Update, we look at the science behind some of the key factors corn seedlings face at emergence.
Which fields are ready to plant first? Often it is the sandier soils as they are first to dry. But sandy soils also have lower water holding capacity and are more porous making them at greater risk from temperature fluctuations.
Crop roots are an essential lifeline to higher yields. Beyond foundational structure and support, roots provide crops vital food and water intake that allow plants to thrive.
Planting corn early has many advantages, but when do risks outweigh rewards?
