Overall I am very happy with crop progress in the northern area. Field conditions are slightly drier than Sparta. Nodulation is excellent along with plant stands. I did not see any aphids, only notable pests are a few Japanese Beetles that are causing very minor feeding damage.
This field of 1808R2's in Hixton has the 30" row closed already.
Channel 1405R2's along Highway 95 in Taylor branching out nicely.
The Exceed SAR inoculant used on these Channel 2108R2's near Alma Center did the trick!
