With late planting occurring in many areas, growers are seeing seedcorn maggot feeding. They prefer decaying organic matter, but also feed on seeds and seedlings of soybeans and field corn.
Nitrogen (N) is the most commonly applied nutrient and one of the costliest inputs in corn production. N application averages 18% and 13% of the variable costs in a corn-corn and corn-soybean rotation, respectively.
While the growing point is just at or below the soil surface (prior to V5-V6 stage), corn can only survive two to four days in totally saturated soil conditions.
Understanding nitrogen (N) uptake patterns is integral to improvement of corn nitrogen use efficiency.
Is Absolutely In Your Control

Uneven emergence, skips, doubles, and uneven spacing all reduce corn yield potential. The later a plant emerges relative to the plants next to it, the less that plant will contribute to overall yield. Those plants tend to stay behind throughout the season.
Many growers are experiencing conditions ripe for slug damage.
Black cutworms feed on newly emerged and young corn plants, causing damage, stress, and the clipping of seedlings. Carefully monitor fields for black cutworm activity.
Meet your corn crop’s demand for nitrogen (N) when it needs it and with the right amounts and forms. Corn response to N fertilization improves when exposure to wet conditions is minimized.
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.
