Rapid growth

Planting has now wrapped up; the time for fungicide on wheat has passed. There has been such rapid growth in corn the last few weeks that some growers have already side-dressed nitrogen on corn, while many are getting ready for those later planted fields. If planning to side-dress nitrogen, it must be applied before V8 as a bulk of the N supply in corn is used between V8 and VT stages.

Talking about weed control
By Chris Snip CCA-ON, CCS, 4R NMS
Crop Sales Specialist
AGRIS Co-operative - Cottam


There has been a lot of talk of weed control lately.  The main focus has been around glyphosate resistant weeds and new weeds we are experiencing. With our late spring in Essex County, it’s become obvious we need to make sure we are using an integrated pest management approach to control all weeds.
Our weed control practices need to focus on all potential weeds we may have on any given field. As time has marched on this spring, I have noticed large populations of dandelions and Canada Thistle, weeds we all thought we had tackled years ago. I have also noticed prickly lettuce making a comeback along with spreading atriplex and a variety of weeds we haven’t seen in any great numbers in years.
