It seems like large May rain events (including some hail) hit all across the Midwest, causing many farmers to tackle some replanting. While many decisions are still being weighed, read on to learn advice from agronomists in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin. They discuss everything from corn/soybean damage and reduced herbicide residual activity to shifting varietal maturities, potential disease openings, dicamba herbicide application cautions, widespread weed pressure, tissue sampling, sidedress N needs, where to focus scouting and decisions, and much more.
