GL Crop Consulting President Greg LaPlante says 90-degree days changed things in a hurry. LaPlante cites the low humidity days seen In Richland County, North Dakota. “Sometimes farmers will have failures on those days, so at least make note if they’re out there spraying on days with low humidity which fields they did so they come back and re-evaluate after a few days,” said LaPlante. “The dicamba beans, we just have to kind of follow the label requirements as far as inversion at night. Breezes have been probably more problematic this year so it’s going to make that kind of difficult to fit in for the number of days we have to try and get things sprayed out.” LaPlante says there’s waterhemp and lambsquarters about two to three inches tall. The corn is also growing well and needs to be monitored.
