Most areas got at least a little rain last week, but some got too much and in some areas it came with heavy winds. While the fields that took heavy wind in June still had growing potential to lessen the effects of the goose-necking and neighboring plants in the green snap areas could adjust ear size or throw a second ear to account for additional sunlight, it is too late in the season for either of those things to do much good for the fields that got wind last week. As Ken was looking at crops that reached R3 and beyond, pollination is showing more uneven than first thought, mostly due to heat stress. In beans, he is seeing waterhemp escapes and both Japanese beetle and the stink bug invade.  All this and more in this week’s Boots In The Field Report.
