This past weekend I had the chance to drive through Nebraska and Kansas and crops overall look very good for this time of year. The combination of corn growing degree days and regular moisture has contributed to favorable conditions this summer.
It will be interesting to see how these conditions apply with respect to the stalk nitrate test. Many growers are ordering supplies to see what type of numbers are received before harvest.
Corn prices have gone down quite a bit in 2016. As a result, growers will continue to watch their costs closely and look for ways to keep expenses down.
As growers continue to watch their crops as we get closer to harvest, we encourage you to work with our client service staff to make sure you have your fall sampling supplies in place and you have selected testing packages that will provide you with the right soil fertility information at a price you can afford.
We are only weeks away from fall harvest.
