Jill, Ryan, Al and Kris were busy the last couple of weeks checking yields on some of our customers farms (in between rains) as part of the 2020 GLG crop tour. This is the 10th year that GLG has organized the event.
The growing season immediately surrounding Haggerty has been excellent, for the most part. To the south, North of Bothwell there was a period of drought which has impacted crop yields to some degree.
In general soybeans look good but until the leaves come off we really won’t know for sure. We are expecting higher soybean yields than 2019.
The corn crop, for the most part, should be above average. Western Bean Cutworm feeding is high on the untreated fields. With the damp weather we are having we will be watching for any moulds developing.
