    In this week’s Boots In The Field Report, Ken shares yield check numbers and pollination issues he is finding during field visits due to drought and wind damage. He covers why it is important to take note of how hybrids handled the heavy wind pressure and encourages growers with the option to put up drones to check how fields survived heavy wind to make sure yield checks don’t need to be adjusted. During field visits this week, most beans were in the R3-R5 stage. Ken warns that once most beans hit R5 they are going to stop growing. This means weeds are about to blow past the beans, especially in 30 inch rows. He reminds growers that spraying at the R5 time frame will come with a yield hit, and cautions growers to look at other options for trying to manage the weed pressure. Ken also covers the weed of volunteer corn in bean fields and what that means for growers wanting to plant non-GMO corn in those fields next year.

    In this week’s podcast Ken gives a pollination report and details the difference between the April planted corn pollination window in comparison to the May planted corn. He advises growers when taking stand counts which ones they should only give half credit to get more realistic yield estimates. Ken also urges growers to make sure they aren’t letting an opportunity to improve their operation pass them by. He is seeing a lot of wind damage, but in this podcast he outlines what that damage can tell growers about their field conditions and how they can shore it up for the future. Ken notes that while the disease pressure is relatively light, it will continue to climb with the humidity and also gives an insect report as pressure builds.
