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.
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.
Here is an easy test to help determine if soil is ready for planting.
Slow down and take the time to make sure things are right, with you, with the seedbed, with the planter.
