Corn and Soybean Update
- Despite issues with compaction, corn is doing well and overcoming the current growing conditions
- Across the overall field, applying starter vs no starter is showing about a 10-inch advantage or a whole growth stage ahead
Hope to Overcome Hail Damage
- Strong storms in Central Indiana caused hail damage, but the corn should overcome any harm because it is still in an early growing stage
- Before the V4-V5 growing stage of corn, the growing point is below the ground
Wheat Harvest Update
- Check your discount schedules to find shrink, moisture, and vomitoxin updates
- Vomitoxin is present, but attempts are being made to mitigate severity
