It was a cool week for the final week of July. Pioneer Field Agronomist Kristie Sundeen says that’s good for the canola and wheat. Corn growers would prefer warmer weather to keep advancing the crop. “We just started seeing tassels poking through. The warm weather this week will help the corn out, but canola and wheat wise, the cooler temperatures were a blessing. There’s a lot of filling happening with those crops.” Fungicide season is wrapping up for wheat and canola. “Late fields are still getting fungicide. That should wrap up by the end of the month. There’s not a lot of herbicide spraying happening at this point, that is pretty much done. Dry beans will still need to be sprayed.”
