With all the rain it seems like lots of fields have weed escapes.

We need more heat and no early frost!!!!!!!!!

Aphid #'s are on the rise in soys, but most fields are at R5 or R6 which means it's too late to spray. Never seen corn this tall - the old saying is the later you plant, the taller the corn, and in some fields that appears to be true. Primary cob is set 5.5 feet off the ground!! I think there is a decent crop of soys and corn out there, but we are vulnerable to running out of heat units before physiological maturity. Propane/natural gas sellers will do alright this fall - the corn dryers will be running hard.

I'm hearing that edible bean crops are full of mold/anthracnose. Can anyone verify that?

We had our soybeans sprayed for Aphids last month the week of the tornado through Durham. We only had 3/4 inch yet 4 km west one farmer who did not spray had 2 to 3 inches of rain - blasted those bugs! I still had more Aphids than he did a few days later.
First time spraying for aphids. Never seen them so thick - should have taken some photos!
Location - north west Huron County.

A fair bit of white mold on our white and black beans. I could see there beeing as much as 40 % crop loss in a few fields but thats not saying alot since the crop looked like it could have doubled last year's earlier on.
