M&S Seed co-owner Greg Selzer says because of the late planting start, there were some weed control challenges. “The fields vary, depending on how it canopied early on and how the crop developed. We struggled, and struggle would be an understatement,” says Selzer. “The corn is okay now. Most farmers have been on top of their chemical and herbicide applications.” Selzer says warmer temperatures would be appreciated. “We want the heat. Cool and cloudy days drag down morale. We are looking for sunshine and heat to push the crop along.”
