Scattered showers and a little cooler temperature moved through the area last week. Some areas look tough and may not have received rain soon enough, but other areas look pretty good given the extremely challenging growing conditions. Producers need to keep a close eye on stalk rot and other issues. Looks like harvest will be an early one. Soybeans have improved last week and continue to set pods. Spider mites continue to be treated in some areas along with some other insects. Field observations show L2084R2’s are handling the stress of this years’ drought very well. It will be an interesting August as we finish this crop.
