Managing corn rootworm beetles can be done several different ways. Crop rotation is one way to interfere with the corn rootworm life cycle by using a corn/soybean rotation.
As I have been out looking at fields recently, I have seen a few things that you should keep top of mind this time of year.
Just this week, I (Jeff) visited a farm with an aging alfalfa stand. Out in the field for five years now, this field was still productive last year, and the grower has a firm contract in place for his hay sales. The contract stipulates non-GMO practices and weed control was becoming an issue. We will follow up on the decision this grower reached in a moment after we hear from Dr. Miller.
“We are excited to have Brayden join our team this spring and summer,” said Bethany Kroeze, AgVenture Marketing Manager. ”We are impressed with his experience in the ag industry and hope this internship will be another way for him to discover the opportunities available with AgVenture and the entire Corteva Agriscience organization.”
As I have been traveling around in recent weeks, I have seen fields that have been planted for weeks with the seed sitting in cold, wet soils. Other fields I’ve seen are being planted just because it’s that time of year.
