This last week we had a good rain but we still need more. That brought relief to the almost 6-week drought in our area. Insect numbers in the traps I have out continue to rise – budworm, armyworm, stinkbug, and sugarcane aphids. Corn has come through this drought better than I had first thought and soybeans are showing more uniformity and are coming through. What has shocked me about soybeans in most cases is that the beans can swell, sprout, and die in dry weather; this round, it was so dry they did not even swell or sprout. Tobacco is doing better but seems to be behind on height. My plots are looking much better than before – I have one plot that has had no rain for six weeks at all. Wheat is getting ready to be harvested. Wheat likes dry weather so what survived the winter rains could be good – the test weight may tell the story. Scout your fields!
