Clyde Burchett - Higginsville, MO
Rainfall :Rainfall has been scattered this week following high heat for several days. Summer is here with a vengeance.
Corn:Adequate soil moisture is helping the corn to take advantage of the heat and move along at a rapid pace.
Soybeans:Virtually no foliar diseases in corn or soybeans.
Other:Damage reports continue to roll in. Saw one field completely destroyed due to tank contamination that has already been replanted. Labels suspended and then reinstated within a week—who knows where this is going. Japanese Beetles are here in extremely high numbers, but minimal field crop damage as of now.
