During the roundtrip from Heyworth, Illinois to Northeast Iowa and back, the area affected by heavy rains was larger than Ken was expecting to see. In this week’s Boots In The Field Report he gives a recap of the field conditions along the route, covers tar spot considerations and reminds the pest boss to be scouting for silk clippers and rate root feeding. He also speaks to the growers in the harder hit areas, encouraging them to keep fighting the good fight and reminds them to never walk away from a growing crop.
