In my opinion, I’m living in the garden spot! Many fields in western Iowa are ready to close the rows in corn within the next 3 to 4 days, and several 20-inch rows have already closed. With the recent rains and warm weather, we’re seeing corn produce white leaves. Don’t be alarmed! The plants are growing so fast that it’s causing white leaves but the effect will disappear in a day or so with no damage to the corn. First cutting alfalfa has been cut and baled; we’re experiencing potato leaf hoppers in high numbers in eastern Monona and western Crawford Counties. An application of Warrior is doing wonders to these fields, so I’d like to remind everyone about the importance of scouting.
When I sit down to write articles for our blog, I feel like I'm sitting down with my family at the dinner table, ready to talk about news from the field while we enjoy one of our favorite recipes. Whether you're looking for information to help you in the field, are interested in trying a farm family's favorite recipe or simply want to see what others are doing to help feed and fuel the world, we cover it here at The Field Position! Thanks for visiting us today and we hope to hear from you again soon!
