Matt Reese, Editor of Ohio’s Country Journal, will be joining OSU Extension’s CORN Live webinar this Thursday to report corn and soybean yield estimates collected through OCJ’s 2021 Ohio Crop Tour, which is underway this week. Along with Matt, Extension educators Taylor Dill, John Barker, and Chris Zoller will give local yield and scouting updates. Soybean specialist Laura Lindsey will join to comment on the overall growing season and yield potential moving forward, along with corn and wheat pathologist Pierce Paul who will discuss disease pressure in corn and yield loss potential. The webinar is on Thursday, August 12th from 8:00-9:00am. 1.0 hours of crop management CCA CEUs are available for attending this free online session. Register to attend at www.go.osu.edu/cornlive.
This year the Ohio Crop Tour will include an in-person tour, with two groups traveling the state and conducting yield estimates, as well as an option to submit yield estimates online so that anyone in the state can contribute information about what they are seeing in the field. The tour is sponsored by Ohio Field Leader. If you would like to participate in the virtual tour by submitting a corn or soybean yield estimates, you can do that online until Thursday, Aug. 12th at 6 p.m. at https://ocj.com/croptour/.
