In this week’s Boots In The Field Report, Ken covers tough conditions in Ohio, his prediction on which fields won’t make black layer, and warns that the size of the yield hit due to Top Kill will be determined by how close the field is to black layer. He also advises the pest team to begin doing “push tests” on stalks for stand-ability to start creating a field harvest order and not to solely rely on planting date or moisture to set that order.
