SYNOPSIS

Stand counts were taken and were really good on both corn and soybeans. There were a few patches of cereal rye that did not completely die at termination. After further inspection, we found that the seeding depth of the corn was 1 1/2 inches, which is a much shallower depth than planned.

COVER CROP INSIGHTS

Some of the cereal rye did not completely die at termination. There are suspicions that it may have been too cool when glyphosate was sprayed at termination.
