Crunch time for corn

July 13, 2017

 

CROPSEY – Much of the corn is tasseling in the area and that means it is time for fungicide applications.

 

There are many decisions a grower must make before application, such as timing, what is used and if the fungicide is really needed. Bryan Cole, plant manager for the Cropsey Brandt Consolidated location, believes similar criteria should be used when deciding whether or not to treat soybeans this summer. Insecticide may be needed since Japanese beetles and other insects are present.

 

“They are making their comeback in this area,” said Cole.

 

Cole says corn in the Cropsey area looks good along with the earlier planted soybean fields. Cropsey and points west have some good looking fields, but locations to the east are a different story.

 

“There are some wet holes and ponding areas that obviously don’t look very good.”

 

Some eastern fields experienced bigger challenges during the spring season. The Cropsey Brandt location can be reached at 309-377-3121.
