There are lessons to learn in every growing year. Dairyland Seed District Seed Manager Keith Rekow says one of the biggest lessons learned in 2019 is getting the importance of getting seed slots closed. “Farmers need to go back to the basics sometimes. Seed slots and fertility are important. Fertility early can make a change going into harvest.” Rekow isn’t too concerned about the soybean crop going into fall, but the corn will need some heat to power through. It’s wet in fields. “Corn north of Huron had about 10 inches of rain in the last two weeks and that corn had too much ponding. Now there’s eight foot corn that has silked and it’s ponding in fields.”
