In the latest ILSoyAdvisor podcast, Abigail Peterson, CCA, and Stephanie Porter, CCA, from the Illinois Soybean Association discuss the current state of planting and crop conditions in Illinois. While some areas have finished planting or are working on their last fields, southern Illinois farmers face delays due to wet conditions.

They share their late-season soybean planting recommendations and discuss the rampant growth of weeds, particularly waterhemp. They also address cover crop management and termination as well as updates on pests such as bean leaf beetles and black cutworm feedings.

The guests in today’s podcast include Stephanie Porter, CCA, Illinois Soybean Association Outreach Agronomist, and Abigail Peterson, CCA, Illinois Soybean Association Director of Agronomy.
