Much of the corn that was planted in mid-April is mature or nearly mature. Some hybrids really progressed a lot this past week (Sept. 5-Sept. 12). Corn planted in early May and mid-May is about 1/2 to 3/4 milk line. I think I am seeing some of the bacterial leaf streak in some fields.
Soybean are late R6-R8. A few early planted fields in Kossuth County have dropped their leaves, but a lot of soybean fields are still green.
Corn silage harvest is complete in this area. The concern on Palmer amaranth in CRP acres has quieted down. I continue to get soil disturbance questions on the installation of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
