The Corteva Agriscience research and development engine is powering delivery of more Enlist E3® soybean varieties, resulting in new germplasm, many with unique Corteva genetics and advanced performance with improved agronomic packages. Starting with the 2023 season, AgVenture has access to more options than ever before to match the best varieties to our customers’ fields.
Many farmers have utilized Enlist® herbicides with Colex-D® technology on their Enlist E3® soybean and PhytoGen® Enlist® cotton acres this season, and industry demand for Enlist E3 soybeans continues to grow. Some questions have been raised about leaf malformation (often referred to as “leaf cupping”) on Enlist E3 soybeans in some fields. This advisory statement reviews the testing record for the Enlist E3 soybean trait and provides resources for help in identifying symptomology that may be seen on Enlist E3 soybeans, soybeans from other trait platforms or conventional soybeans.
The status of corn is an interesting one even after most have caught some rain. The wind and/or hail issues that ran through several states left corn beat up and laid down. Across Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois, it is tasseling or will be within the next week or two. Corn is very short with shorter than normal internodes.
Tissue testing is a great way to manage your nutrient levels in-season and can help boost your yields. However, it must be done correctly to see a gain in your fields this fall. As tissue testing detects whether your plant has sufficient nutrients for growth, knowing when and what to test is imperative. Keep in mind, that tissue testing should not be the only way you determine management strategies for your crops.
So you finally got, or are about to get, some rain. Whew! Good news after a tough 6-8 weeks here in the Midwest. What now?
