ISU Extension climatologist Elwynn Taylor, integrated pest management specialist Rich Pope and corn agronomist Roger Elmore are interview guests this week. Taylor says a light frost is possible, but no crop damage is expected. Pope reminds farmers that it's not too late to scout corn and soybean crops for weeds and insects. Elmore encourages corn farmers to pay close attention to poor standing crops as harvest gets underway.
