Drought. Commodity traders have taken notice and responded with much higher prices. Daytime temperatures over 100 degrees are starting to take their tole on our corn. While their is little we can do about the weather, we have been doing our best to keep the Japanesee beetles at bay. Last week we sprayed our southern bean fields with insecticide to keep them from chewing more holes in the soybean leaves while we wait on the next rain. We also sprayed a few of our bean fields around the Ashland area for a late flush of waterhemp that made it through our last past of RoundUp.
Enjoy your 4th of July holiday!
