The corn crop is in the middle of pollination this weekend.
The hot temperatures are starting to take a toll on the crops condition, a rain is needed this weekend!
Fungicide applications are nearly completed. We have had to treat several farms with a pesticide to keep the root worm Beatles from destroying the silks and hindering pollination.
We are scouting soybeans daily for bugs as conditions are perfect for a spider mite outbreak.
If your looking for something to do this weekend, come to Arthur, il to experience the freedom celebration and evening fireworks show.
