The large amounts of rain we’ve had over the past couple of weeks have made sidedressing and spraying corn fields nearly impossible. The window for those operations is closing fast. The remaining fields that didn’t get ammonia will have to be sprayed with 28% between the row (plan B). The more mature corn fields seem to fair better against the down pours than the less mature ones. However, corn fields, like the one above, are a sight for sore eyes. It’s nice to see dark green and an even stand. Now, it is in mother nature’s hands to take it the rest of the way.
As seed corn deliveries are in full swing and with the weather breaking, its time to turn our attention to soybeans and soybean treatment. Seed treatment gives the seed the best opportunity to get out of the ground by shielding it from common pests. The majority of our soybean seeds are treated with Valent®’s Intego™ Suite System (tag). This treatment provides industry leading protection against phytophthora, pythium, fusarium, rhizoctonia, and seed and seedling decay.
Ask your seed salesman how the Intego™ Suite System is able to increase your soybean yields today!
Are you ready for your seed corn? Over the past week we have started organizing and delivering seed corn orders to customers, a process that will take approximately one month to six weeks. And, as long as mother nature cooperates, we will begin treating and delivering soybeans in the coming weeks. It is hard to believe that planting season is right around the corner!
As a reminder: Make sure you protect your seed from rodents and other pests (mice, raccoons, etc.).
