Jerseyville and Hardin today
Soil Sampling season is winding down. We worked in the Jerseyville and Hardin areas today. Crop condition is excellent for the most part. Moisture is good with a few of the retest areas showing a bit of stress from the wetness. Average corn height is 3 feet. We are expecting lots of tasseling by July 4. Some soybeans were planted late and on a few areas, some remain to be planted, but many of them have 3 or 4 trifoliates. Some are running board height on the four wheeler. We have seen few disease or insect issues so far. Lots of people are hoping for a few more days of dry weather to get caught up on spraying. Wheat is starting to head toward maturity. I have not really done a flag leaf survey, but I expect some disease -r0bles because of moisture.
