Reseach Update (April 27, 2013)
Diligence Technologies, Inc., West Tennessee
We have corn (at least in places)! Cool, wet weather has slowed corn emergence in our plots, but our earliest planted corn is out of the ground. It is showing a little frost damage in places, but I don't think it will have a long-term negative impact. While we are happy to see some plants above-ground, most of our corn is still slowly working its way to the surface. Our only remaining corn trials are those that are delayed for reasons other than weather.
Wheat fungicide applications should wrap up next week if the weather permits.
With all the rain and cool temperatures, it is hard to believe that cotton planting time has arrived in west Tennessee. The calendar says its time to plant, but it remains to be seen when we will actually be able to get in the field.
Thanks to Brandon Law of Actagro for stopping by for a tour of some wheat work this week.
Please give me a call with your projects and protocol ideas. We have plenty of time to talk (at least until the rain lets up).
