In this episode, the Soy Envoys discuss recent field activity, highlighting variability in conditions with some regions dry and suitable for planting while others remain wet. They report cold injury in corn, significant weed pressure, and black cutworm feeding in both corn and soybeans.

The Soy Envoys also address concerns about how planting delays might affect yields, advising growers to remain patient and stay the course. If replanting is necessary, consult with your seed supplier and continue monitoring growth stages.

The guests in today’s podcast include Soy Envoys Karen Corrigan, McGillicuddy Corrigan Agronomics; Eric Beckett, Illini FS; Kelly Robertson, Precision Crop Services LLC; Drew Beckman, Beck’s Hybrids; and Craig Grafton, Bayer Crop Science. Today’s podcast was hosted by Kelsey Litchfield, Agronomic Outreach Specialist for Illinois Soybean Association.
