DuPont Pioneer Agronomy Report

Eastern Route - Day 4
Starts in Iowa City, Iowa and ends in Rochester, Minn.

Report from southern Minnesota

  • Overall, the corn crop is in good to very good condition. The area received a nice rain overnight.
  • Most of the corn in the area is about at the milk stage. The biggest agronomic issue in corn is nitrogen deficiency caused by early spring rains.
  • Soybeans are in the R4 growth stage or beyond. Overall, aphid pressure is low to moderate. The last few days of higher temperatures and rain have helped decrease populations.
