Finally, we are getting much-needed rain. Stinkbugs again are on the rise scout fields! Hemp has been under quite a bit of stress due to the heat and disease plant are dying off in some fields. Soybeans have been under tremendous stress aborting flowers which is hurting yield. Corn pollination is going well but lack of moisture creates ear-fill issues. Still, keep a lookout on armyworms, as I am getting an increase in moth counts. Tobacco leaf has been put under stress due to heat and could affect weight and quality. Again, scout your fields and look to see what is out there!
