Corn Summary: This was 190 bushel corn with a good stand around 32,000. There was no real stress in the field. Really nice field that still may have some upside potential.
Soybean Summary: The plants were podded well. We saw some aphids feeding. Canopy height at 40 inches with evidence of some dry weather as some pods were aborted. There is still some good yield potential with some rain.
Corn Summary: The yield was 198 bushels in this impressive field. There was a population of 30,000 in this later planted field. This was a clean field and looked really good. No denitrification — solid green top to bottom.
Soybean Summary: The canopy was at 40 inches in 15-inch rows and podded low at a first node three inches off the ground and heavily podded on up. No stress with excellent yield potential. Plants are really healthy with no insect damage — a beautiful field of beans.
Corn Summary: We found a yield of 193 with a population of 28,000. These were the most consistent ears we found today with no stress in the corn. Seemed to be disease free.
Soybean Summary: This was the tallest canopy so far with a 52-inch height and excellent yield potential and pods head to toe. There was not much disease or insect feeding. There was some lodging.
Corn Summary: The corn looks to be 140 bushels. There was good color in this very tall corn but there was disease pressure with GLS and yields were not as high as we expected from the road. The population was around 28,000.
Soybean Summary: They were tall at 50 inches. They looked better than they are. They were 15-inch beans with only 40 two- or three-bean pods per plant. There was a lot of plant but not a lot of beans with the first node seven inches off the ground. There were no disease or insect problems but heavy giant ragweed.
Corn Summary: This was 180-bushel corn with a good stand. They have had timely rains that minimized denitrification. There was a 30,000 population and some smut and mold issues with some ears.
Soybean Summary: These were the tallest beans we’ve seen with many pods. We will eat our shorts if they don’t hit 60. There is excellent yield potential. There was some white mold.
Corn Summary: There was a population around 33,000 with a yield of 151 bushels per acre with significant GLS. It is matured and will be ready for harvest in two or three weeks. There was a lack of moisture here and it was an uneven stand. It was planted on April 20.
Soybean Summary: Canopy at 32 inches with the first node about four inches up. It was clean with no disease and many two- and three-bean pods. It was frosted on May 16 and replanted May 20. The yield potential is probably below average in this field.
Corn Summary: We had a population around 30,000 with a lot of cannibalization and weed pressure. There was tip-back, poor fill, GLS and other disease. Yield was 105 in this very dry field.
Soybean Summary: This was a 24-inch canopy, maybe the shortest so far. There was evident spider mite damage and it looked like they sprayed for them. There is low to average yield potential.
Corn Summary: There was a moderate amount of GLS at the ear and above. There were some variable plant sizes at a 31,500 population with a yield of 152 bushels.
Soybean Summary: The canopy height was at 29 inches with a first node height around six inches. This was a clean field with many two- and three-bean pods and some singles. There was average yield potential with little disease or insect pressure.
Corn Summary: Yield was at 122 bushels with several tassel ears and some denitrification and the heaviest cannibalization we have seen so far. There was poor fill in some of the ears. The field had a good population around 31,000. This field was planted in late April.
Soybean Summary: The canopy height was around 32 inches with pods starting to fill and a decent pod count. There was no insect or disease pressure to speak of and it looks like they sprayed fungicide in this field with average yield potential. Some pods had been aborted.
Corn Summary: The population was at 32,000 with a 150 yield. This was a consistent hybrid that ran out of water. Dry conditions limited the great potential in this field. This was by far the most mature corn we have seen planted around April 27. This was short corn.
Soybean Summary: These were 15-inch row beans with a 29-inch canopy. The first node was around four inches with many two and three-bean pods. There were some aborted blooms from the less than one inch of rain from June 15 to Aug. 12.
