    C.O.R.N. Live is back as we anticipate the 2021 Farm Science Review. Nate Douridas, Farm Manager of the Molly Caren Ag Center, site of the Farm Science Review, will give an update on harvest as they begin to open fields for field demonstrations. He will give us an early look at yields and moisture and what to expect during the field demonstrations this year. Then join us for a walk through the Agronomic Crops Plots. These plots demonstrate research conducted on farms around the state and offer CCA credit opportunities during the show.

    Options to try to make weedy fields more harvestable include preharvest application of certain herbicides or waiting until after frost to harvest, or both.  Weedy fields should generally be harvested as late as possible to give maximum time for weeds to die and dry down and rot.

  4. Soybean Pod Feeding Injury
    Author(s): Kelley Tilmon , Author(s): Curtis Young, CCA , Author(s): Andy Michel

    We have heard a few reports of either bean leaf beetles, grasshoppers, or stink bugs increasing in soybeans.  As we start to approach the end of the growing season the larger concern with these insects is the potential for pod feeding, rather than foliage feeding.  Pod feeding directly impacts grain quality.  Crop stage is also an important consideration.  Late-planted fields or double-cropped soybeans which are still green when other fields are drying down can be “trap crops,” attracting the insects that are leaving the other maturing fields.  Such fields bear close watching.
