    • It don't sound very good for a major area of the US I don't hear much from those past posters. Hope all goes better than things look now.

      • Planting a third time for our area means it harvest and the guy is running a Gleaner Silver Seeder

          • Looks like some rain may be heading our way . Sure hope so . Now we could use it . Funny how in a matter of weeks we can go from to wet and not getting on the fields , to needing rain .
            Potato farmers have been irrigating and corn on the light or gravel soil has started rolling .

            • Been dry for a few days here and forecast looks dry for next two weeks. Temps crawling up, 90's and near 100 or over starting tomorrow. Great for trying to get caught up on alfalfa and brome cutting, but noticed a corn patch yesterday that the leaves were just a little curled in the afternoon. I thought it was odd with all the moisture we've had and it wasn't that hot yesterday, that corn would look like that. I'm wondering what two weeks of hot with no rain will make this stuff look like after being rained on weekly since the start. Can use two weeks of dry to get caught up, just hope it doesn't turn into 2 months, which wouldn't surprise me a bit after what the last 10 months have been.

              • We . have received about 2 inches over the last 2 days. The corn on light soils was rolling a little . I am also seeing some corn rolling after spraying. Not certain of the ****tail being used. But it sure wasn't very corn friendly.

                If we get a long dry spell later with high temperatures crops will suffer badly. With wet conditions early, the crops have very limited root development so they won't get as well rooted and won't reach available moisture or nitrogen

                But so far the last 2 weeks have been pretty good for catching up on heat units and hay making/growing

                  • We got .7 of rain last night . Could have used a bit more but we're happy for that . Today was hot , in the 90s , real humid and no breeze .
                    First variety of sweet corn has been tasseling the last few days . Some of the other varieties you can see the tassels starting to emerge .
                    Although this hot weather has been helping the crops catch up we are still behind a week or two .

                    • We finished wheat harvest, ready for a rain!

                      Corn and some milo are rolling, early planted good growth soybeans looking good, but a rain wouldn't hurt them either.

                      Now ready for 3 days of Extreme heat warning beginning tomorrow at 1pm through Friday 10pm. Unless something really interesting comes up, you can probably catch me
                      in the house after noon the next 3 days...heat index when I got home this after noon late was 104, temperature of 99º, but a south breeze 10-15mph...



                      looking over the top of our first planted corn from the combine, saw 3 plants tasselling, it can wait another 3 days for all I care!!!!

                        Well, King, we have had the same herbicide issues here. We planted conventional corn, and some of the earlier planted took a real hit from the spray.[we sidedressed it Monday with drop hoses on the sprayer]. I keep trying to emphasize on the younger generation that when corn gets taller, herbicides hurt it more. The same corn planted later looks lovely. We are getting a rain right now, so that fertilizer with Agrotain in it should not be wasted! ON A SIDE NOTE, does anybody else watch the Tour de France on NBC sports channel? The picture show they give you of the country always attracts me. The amount of straw off of their small grain crops? WOW! And DUKE, their sunflowers are blooming! It comes on here at 4:30. so it makes for a pretty start for our day!

                        • We are in a serious drought here Driest it has been in a long time. It has not rained since yesterday, and we only had an inch then!

                          • 38° in Minnesota last night! It was 6 1/2 hrs north of me but still we had 53° that's only 26° from killing frost. For those in parts of he world that think water freezes at 32° plants have lots of sugars and salts in them that don't allow them to freeze until 27° for 4hrs unless they are weeds then -50 doesn't kill them. Phone is ready for harvest call insurance adjuster skip fixing the combine.

                            • After spending the last 11 months wishing the rain would miss us, we're finally at the more typical wishing for rain in July and August. Our last good rain was July 4 there abouts. Stuff has looked good until just today I noticed beans looked like they were starting to stress. There sure isn't as much plant there to stress as would be normally.

                                Sugarcane aphid has made its way into southern Kansas. The first detection was reported Tuesday July 30, 2019, in Sumner County, KS.

                                Although infestations in Texas and Oklahoma have been lighter this summer, compared to recent years, please be prepared to scout your sorghum fields. Scout early and often, and visit https:///www.myfields.info/pests/sugarcane-aphid If you find sugarcane aphids, please contact your local extension agent or state specialist.

                                County alerts will be sent out as SCA moves further into the state. If you have a sorghum field with established sugarcane aphid and would like to participate in a KSU Entomology field trial, please use the Contact UsWe would appreciate the help! Please do not reply to this email.

                                Thank you,
