A product manager with Seed Consultants says there is a lot
of variability in fields in the Eastern Corn Belt.
Matt Hutcheson says crops were planted in wet ground and are now facing drought stress.
“The crops have been beat up in a lot of areas– there’s a lot of variability,” he says. “Some fields have pretty decent yields in parts of the field and some areas of the field there’s going to be some tough yields as well.”
He tells Brownfield root restriction and compaction are a
concern and growers should continue to monitor crop standability.
