With late crop development this year, we still have a lot of crops to check. One excellent tool is the Corn, Soybean, Wheat and Alfalfa Field Guide - updated and in a new format this year - will help with this chore. The Field Guide is available for sale on OSU Extension’s eStore, or may be ordered from any county Extension office as well.
This link will take you to the store for the hard copy: ( http://estore.osu-extension.org/productdetails.cfm?PC=2845 ); the price is $12.50. Many use their droid, iPhone or iPad in the field for that there is a digital version available now too: (http://estore.osu-extension.org/productdetails.cfm?PC=2841 ), for $10.00.
Reasons to buy the Field Guide now:
- ear rots
- stalk rots
- soybean seed molds
- insect identification (for those that are moving into your house)
- updated fertility recommendations
- weed identification

and so much more.
