    Frost/Freeze Summary

    The National Weather Service Frost/Freeze program has ended for the season as many areas have experienced 1-2 hard freezes (28°F) over the last three weeks.

  2. Harvesting, Sampling, and Testing: This year, slow grain dry-down, delayed harvest, and late-season rainfall have led to fairly high levels of one or more ear rots (Gibberella, Fusarium, Diplodia and Trichoderma) in some corn fields.

  3. Author(s):

    The USEPA recently reapproved use of Engenia and XtendiMax on Xtend and XtendiFlex soybeans, with modifications to address concerns about off-target movement.  Summary of current situation follows:

    - While the previous labels for these products listed all of the typical uses of dicamba that are found on most dicamba labels aside from soybeans, these two products are now approved for use only on dicamba-resistant soybeans – Xtend and XtendiFlex. 

  4. This summer we planted a variety of cover crops in the AgCrops Plots at Farm Science Review. We took some video before the killing frost a few weeks ago. Listen in as we discuss the species and benefits in this short video. Check back throughout the winter as we monitor how each species breaks down or survives until planting next spring.
