In this week’s Boots In The Field Report Ken covers some of the issues he is seeing in this dry weather including drought stress on crops, herbicide carryover from last June being dry, and lack of mass flow for potassium uptake. He continues to get reports of leaning corn issues due to lack of crown root development and warns that dicamba type product applications will probably make this problem worse. He has also spotted silvering on corn due to low temp / scalding on leaves, cutworm damage on beans planted into cover, and first flowers on early planted beans. He also advises growers to be on army worm watch this weekend and to make sure in these dry conditions to use a urease inhibitor with y-drop and surface sidedress applications.
