Once again I left this go longer than I intend. Weather is still too damp, but I would estimate most corn is planted at this time. That is ahead of last year in our area. I have seen a few soybeans up. The cutworms seem to be hanging on. There is a small amount of damage in a lot of fields. One field I was in today had been sprayed with some unknown formula. Corn plants were burned on leaf tips in some cases. In other cases, the corn was dead. Looks like an overlap situation. The good news is that the waterhemp was dead. Most weeds were dead except shepherd's purse. We have found Nitrogen to be short in lots of situations.
