After Thursday morning’s frost warning is through most of Central IL will be moving to a green light for planting corn and will hold most likely till the end of planting. Green light is in regards to temperature, if field moisture is too high, then growers have to wait for that to dry out first.  Due to weather, several fields have a heavy cover of weeds, crop scouts need to keep an eye on these fields for cutworm and armyworm presence even if they were tilled. Seed quality continues to have a larger number then normal falling into poor quality, if growers haven’t sent off a seed sample may want to keep back a small sample that they can send off later if field shows stand establishment issues. The warmer weather will help lessen some of the risk on these lower testing seeds.
