Asgrow/Dekalb Technical Agronomist Derek Pruitt likes where this crop is sitting going into harvest. It may be an average soybean crop, but Pruitt expects more from the corn. “I’m cautiously optimistic, it’ll be fun to see what results we get when the combines start to roll.” Because of drought conditions, Pruitt says harvest management will be key for the corn crop. “Make a list of which fields you need to get to take care of first. Some dry corn stalks just won’t be as strong.”
