Planning for a high yield season in Midwest and Northern

Planning for a High-Yield Season

Maximizing potential starts long before harvest. Through thoughtful agronomic planning and a proactive approach to weed, disease and pest control, Midwest and Northern growers can achieve higher yields and maximize profits.

Seed selection is one of the most important management decisions growers make. The right corn hybrid or soybean seed variety can have a drastic impact on yield and profit potential. By reviewing variety trial results, growers can choose the defensive packages and traits that can help them succeed in the next crop year.

Proper weed management is just as crucial. When a particular weed management practice is working well and is economically attractive, it is tempting to continue with it, even though growers know this significantly increases selection pressure and can lead to resistance. However, proactive, successful weed management happens across multiple growing seasons and requires planning to stay ahead of resistance.

Crops must survive a number of disease threats throughout the season, from gray leaf spot in corn to frogeye leaf spot in soy. Management is achieved through an integrated approach of best management practices, including the use of fungicides and seed treatments.

By carefully selecting corn hybrids or soybean seeds and adopting proactive, long-term approaches to weed and disease management, Midwest and Northern growers can increase crop potential, no matter what comes their way.

Palmer Amaranth on the Move in the Midwest

Native to the southwestern United States, Palmer amaranth has become a problem weed for many Midwest growers in recent years. In 2018, Palmer amaranth moved into North Dakota and Wyoming, and is now present in 39 of the 48 continental U.S. states.

Don’t Overlook the Significance of Late-Emerging Weeds

Late-season weeds are more likely to be allowed to go to seed, increasing the weed seed bank for future seasons. Find out how to fight back with a zero-tolerance approach.
