Report of WBC pheromone trap locs in southern York & Fillmore Co’s. Moth flights likely peaked over this last week. Most economical insecticide apps will be effective w/ larvae hatch this week. Clay Center light trap report

Yes, I met with 15 growers yesterday in Dodge/Washington counties about Painted Lady (thistle) caterpillars. Use a 15% defoliation threshold in drought stressed/late planted fields, instead of 20%. Lots of variation in caterpillar size, so could easily be 2 more weeks of feeding.

Sheesh. Most plane apps here are in the $7.50-$8.50 /ac range for the app itself. I don’t know of anyone that would put a ground rig across a field for much less than $6-$6.50 / ac, especially on VT stage corn.

Curious, how are you figuring $10/ac cheaper?

Had the opportunity to get to know & work with him when I covered that area. Great guy. Thanks for sharing.

Not likely. Industry would not be able to reliably supply RIB hybrids if they only used the same hybrid platform for the refuge as the main component.

They’re getting crafty on their egg placement

Still putting on over 4000 gal /ac with the UAN at .15”. No worries at all.

Going to have some pretty good dryland corn if we keep cashing in on these 20% isolated rain chances

Off site. Allows business to be seperate from family life if you so choose. Much more valuable as an asset down the road for someone else also.

Although shorter than “normal”, soybeans moving right along through repro stages. Mid-late group II planted through mid May at R3 (beginning pod stage - 3/16” pod in upper 4 nodes). At peak water use stages. Good timing for R3 insecticide/fungicide app as well.

No lack of stink bug pressure in corn fields this year. Appears like there will be more to follow.

It was only about an hour from us last week, but couldn’t make it work to see it go by. Plan is to catch it when it comes back Aug 4th. Would love to see it pull Sherman Hill west of Cheyenne someday.

Someone’s going to be miffed when the grass is dead from the T&L oil leaks on it this week

Stink bug eggs slightly larger & usually aligned more parallel or in a honycomb pattern, & more “beer keg” shaped, vs round ones of WBC. A few other differences seen w/ a sightglass
