  • Research on the Impact of Dicamba Micro-Rates on Non Dicamba-Tolerant Soybeans

    With the increased use of dicamba-tolerant (DT) soybeans (Roundup-Ready 2 Xtend), the off-target movement of dicamba to non-DT soybeans and other broadleaf crops is of concern. In 2017 the majority of soybean acreage was planted to non-DT varieties and there were many complaints of dicamba drift, some of which have led to litigation. For example, […]

  • Nematodes Are Everywhere, Including in Corn

    Nematodes are a problem that’s more widespread than you might think. Every type of crop — including corn — has at least one type of parasitic nematode species. While a management practice like crop rotation can help, because certain species can feed on multiple crops, it alone doesn’t provide adequate protection. Stealing Yields and Getting […]

  • What Can Farmers Do About Climate Change? Soil Health and Drainage

    Extreme precipitation is a serious concern for farmers as the climate continues to change. In many areas, downpours will be concentrated earlier in the year. Standing water and moist soil will work against farmers trying to get into the fields in time for crop insurance planting requirements and ideal yields. While the installation of surface ditch or subsurface “tile” effectively […]
