Rain, rain, and more rain

As the rain continues to mount, growers are struggling to get the remaining acres of corn and soybeans into the ground in order to have a successful fall. While some fields are under water, others are dry enough to spray pre-plant herbicides on the soil followed by a timely and limited disturbance planting.

With such short time frames to spray and plant, please check that all Mini Bulk containers are working properly by running them before crunch time. Although unlikely, if there are any problems with the motors, pumps, etc. please call the office at 715-335-6343 immediately and we will usually fix the problem within the hour you call, free of charge.  The last thing we want is for you to be waiting on us when you want to spray your chemicals.

Besides headaches, this wet weather brings disease. There are many options to prevent and/or cure disease in your corn, wheat and soybeans. Please refer to our monthly newsletter under “Fungicide Forecast” for details on application timing, rates and products available.
