One of the services that Legend Seeds offers our customers through our Farmacology program is access to soil sampling services through Frontier Labs. Fertilizer is one of the highest input costs in an operation. Soil sampling is vital to ensure the RIGHT nutrients are applied at the RIGHT rate, at the RIGHT time, and in the RIGHT place of the field.

IN THE FIELD SIGHTING

Not only did last week bring lots of rain, but with the rain came lots of wind. This wind has confirmed what we have been fearing for weeks now, that our corn plants have been riddled with diseases causing them to have weak stalks.

Silage harvest will soon be upon us and the decisions made at chopping will affect silage quality. Determining when to harvest silage (at the right whole-plant moisture) can be difficult.

How do you know when your silage is ready to chop? Determining silage moisture can be a challenge. Dry matter content of the whole plant can vary with maturity; therefore, it is important to know when the field is ready for harvest.

Sudden Death Syndrome, more commonly known as SDS, is becoming more prevalent across many parts of the United States. SDS is a destructive soil-borne disease that can be difficult to manage. Your best management option is to choose varieties that have some resistance to the disease.

Sclerotinia stem rot, more commonly known as white mold, is a common and destructive disease. It is sometimes seen across the U.S. and Canada; however, it is more common in southeast Minnesota, northeast Iowa, and northwest Illinois. It is also prevalent in the Dakotas as well, as it affects many other crops that are grown in the region; such as canola and sunflower.
