Dicamba Research Issues Starting to Surface

After many weeks in the denial and back steppping mode by the manufacturers of the new formulations of dicamba, we seem to be getting some information that perhaps Monsanto, BASF and DuPont need to take another look at what they did wrong.  First it looks like they hid behind the veil of corporate secrecy to get their label approvals. It also looks like there was little field testing of the products.  It looked good on paper so lets run with it.  Check out the RPM Soils Facebook Page for links with all the details.  We have been posting there.

Subsoil Moisture

We did a septic tank evaluation today about 5 miles west of Fillmore.  Soil is very dry to a depth of 4 feet.  This was in a corn field, so realistic of field conditions.  from 4 to five feet there is a little moisture.  Corn looked very good under the circumstances.
