Left 2 ears 197-90 on soybean stubble. Center ears 197-68STX, corn on corn Right ears 194-75STX, corn on corn We need rain to finish grain fill. At this point significant yield loss is occuring even on heavy soils.
Channel 1818R2X soybeans with plenty of moisture in Taylor. I expect big yields this year.
Left to right Channel 192-10STX, 197-68STX, 198-17VT2P, 199-11STX, and Pioneer P0075. The early varieties have a big advantage on grain fill. If we stay dry the early hybrids may have a big yield advantage.
The Xtend system is by far the best on the market. This 2 foot tall Roundup resistant waterhemp was sprayed with Engenia. Lights out!
New Channel 1520R2X soybeans are starting to set pods. They are still in the R2 growth stage but in only a few days will be R3. Knowing the growth stage is important for rescue herbicide treatments and fungicide applications. Now is the time to get after fungicide spraying. Best investment you can make in your soybean crop, in my opinion.
The heat and moisture have pushed crop growth along nicely. It also has pushed weed germination and development after residual herbicides lose potency. Waterhemp are the main issue along with a few tough giant ragweed. A good pre herbicide program is a must for soybean weed control. Now is a great time talk and make a plan for next year.
