With the predicted weather for Central IL, Ken gives a green light for full season beans on ground that is fit and sees a window for a possible green light for corn starting as early as this weekend. Ken fears some growers will grow impatient and work ground too wet to try to dry it out, creating season long compaction, or mud in corn. He also reminds growers not to let covers ahead of corn get too big, to keep an eye on seed quality and germ when choosing which seed to plant early, be on the look out for herbicide carryover damage in overlap zones, and know your hybrid’s Stewart’s wilt score if we run into heavy pressure from the flea beetle.
