There are two topics that seem to come up in nearly every conversation amongst farmers and ag suppliers. Number one, most of the corn is still in the field. “Secondly, it is very wet and it is very light,” said Brad Syltie, territory manager, Valent. “So what do you do with wet, light corn? Some guys are going to let it stand and some guys are combining it and drying it and trying to figure out to do with it from there.” Whatever happens with the corn, there will be plenty of residue to deal with next spring. “You hear guys talking about everything from burning to trying to till it up. It is really wet and it’ll create a mass. Managing it will depend on who you talk to.” With a lot of fieldwork not done this fall, more minimum till is expected next spring. Syltie recommends Valent’s Fierce or Fierce MTZ to get the season off to a good start.
