Scouting for disease pressure this summer

A western Iowa farmer says prioritizing disease management will be critical to crop success in 2023.

Kevin Ross raises corn, soybeans, and hay in Pottawattamie County. “We have seen a few more of those issues show up here in our area the last couple of years.”

He says corn on corn acres have been impacted the most, but “It’s been a bit for myself personally since we’ve had to deal with (disease),” Ross said. “We went back to a 50-50 rotation here a few years ago and have enjoyed that.”

Ross says scouting will be crucial during the summer.
