Larry Litzau’s farm just outside Glencoe, MN, rain has received more than its share of rain this spring and early summer. In the month of May, Southwest Minnesota received more than 17 inches of rain. As of June 1, they have seen 9 inches. This abundance of rain has caused some drowning out and a need for replanting. Planting took place on April 27 at this plot, and the corn is all around stage V5-V6. No signs of insects or disease pressure at this time. Pre-emergence herbicide was sprayed, and there is no heavy weed pressure at this time.
