By Doug Cooper, Extension Communications

Listen to Doug Cooper, Extension communications specialist, as he interviews Iowa State University Extension climatologist Elwynn Taylor, integrated pest management specialist Rich Pope, and sybean agronomist Palle Pedersen.

During the weekly interview, Taylor says hot humid temperatures should be behind us for a few weeks with a return to cooler and drier weather.

Pope talks about this year's pesky weed - volunteer corn — and how it is presenting a problem for many corn and soybean producers.

Pedersen continues the conversation about weeds and volunteer corn in soybean fields. Many field are unsightly because rainy conditions have made the weeds difficult to control.
