Come Hell or High Water…We’re Going to Get Some More Spraying Done

Actually, that is not entirely true.  We won’t be spraying with the JD 4830s until the soil dries in the soybean fields.  What we are going to do in the meantime is contract with a company to spray Headline AMP, a fungicide, on some of this (formerly) waterlogged corn via helicopter.  The window to spray this dual disease control fungicide to get full benefit is about to open (just post tassel) and lasts 10 to 14 days.  After that, the advantage of applying late season fungicide diminishes.
