In the first Pioneer Agronomy Update of the season, Shaun McCoy of McCoy Pioneer Seed at Larimore, North Dakota is urging patience. “I know everybody wants to get going, but we need to have fit conditions in the field. Don’t plant when it’s too wet, I think we learned that in 2020.” Pioneer Field Agronomist Kevin Sinner believes farmers should stick with their plan. “I would still plant your corn just as you originally planned up to May 20 or May 25,” said Sinner. “Stay the course; the weather will turn around and hopefully, we get the predicted heat units this summer to finish things off right.” The Pioneer Agronomy Update can be found on the Red River Farm Network YouTube channel.
