Frogeye Leaf Spot Quick Facts

Primary impacts soybean foliage reducing photosynthetic area on infected leaves. Where numerous, frogeye spots have the potential to significantly diminish soybean productivity and yield potential.

Causes and Management of Corn Stalk Lodging

Lodging can complicate corn harvest and may lead to yield loss and problems with grain storage. Ear drooping and stalk lodging may be caused by different factors including: high winds, stalk cannibalization, and stalk rots. Understanding some of the contributing factors and how to most effectively manage the harvest and storage of lodged corn may assist in harvest scheduling and planning for next season.

Mid and Late Season Bean Leaf Beetle

Bean leaf beetles may have one to three generations per year, depending on location. The most damage occurs to the soybean plant from adult feeding on foliage or pods. The time period left before anticipated harvest of a field may dictate the insecticide chosen.

High Temperature Effects on Corn Pollination

Long stretches of high temperatures may affect corn pollination. Hot weather can reduce viability, production, and the release of pollen grains. Silk viability can be reduced under extreme high temperatures before pollen shed. Timing of pollen shed, silking, and hot temperatures play a role in how heat affects the pollination process.

Replanting Decisions for Soybeans

Understanding the cause of an inadequate soybean stand is important to help prevent a reoccurrence of the problem if the decision is made to replant. Final soybean plant stands of at least 73,000 plants per acre provide 90 percent or more of maximum yield potential. Make weed control a high priority in fields with reduced stands.

Early Season Insects of Corn

Early season corn insects feed on seeds and seedlings, which may result in plant injury, stunting, delayed emergence, or stand loss. Scouting is necessary to determine the types of insects present and their population densities in order to make informed management decisions. Sampling methods vary based on insect species and include scouting, soil sampling, and baited traps.

Soybean Planting Conditions and Seed Placement

Soybean yield potential is the result of many factors: genetics, environmental conditions and management practices. Additionally, deficient nutrient levels in the soil can also affect yield. When nutrients are limited, photosynthesis, water transport, and protein, oil and carbohydrate production can be negatively affected. A simple soil test can help evaluate the deficiencies and increase yields.

Corn Leafing Out Prior To Emergence Due To Chilling Injury

Soybean yield potential is the result of many factors: genetics, environmental conditions and management practices. Additionally, deficient nutrient levels in the soil can also affect yield. When nutrients are limited, photosynthesis, water transport, and protein, oil and carbohydrate production can be negatively affected. A simple soil test can help evaluate the deficiencies and increase yields.

The Importance of Fertility in a Soybean Crop

Soybean yield potential is the result of many factors: genetics, environmental conditions and management practices. Additionally, deficient nutrient levels in the soil can also affect yield. When nutrients are limited, photosynthesis, water transport, and protein, oil and carbohydrate production can be negatively affected. A simple soil test can help evaluate the deficiencies and increase yields.
