During the Pioneer Agronomy Update, Clark Price says the corn and soybeans are behind in the Washburn, North Dakota area, but could still do well with timely rains. Clark, who operates River Ag, said farmers and ranchers in the area hope to see some height on the corn crop. “They want to make silage to get some feed put together because the hay is also in very short supply.” The row crops are very uneven. “It has been a big challenge to apply herbicide products correctly, said Larry Lunder, field agronomist, Pioneer. “A lot of rain covers a lot of mistakes and no rain magnifies every mistake that’s made and every issue that you have.” Pioneer will be hosting a series of Executive Enlist Plot Tours during the week of July 12. There will be stops in Middle River, Devils Lake, Fessenden, Pingree and Amenia.
