Alfalfa – Alfalfa continues to grow rapidly. Finding heavier weevil larvae populations late last week that warranted spraying. Finding good control on those fields sprayed at the end of last week. Finding increased pressure on fields not yet treated. Be sure to take a look at your alfalfa if you have not done so.  

Wheat – Wheat is looking good throughout the area. Most fields in jointing stage and getting some height. Starting to see some moisture stress on sandier fields.

Corn – Being planted throughout the area now. Finding some kernels sprouted within 4 days of planting.

Soybeans – Being planted in areas.  
 
Burndown Treatments – Starting to see marestail bolting and other winter annuals really greening up or flowering. Plan ahead for burndowns, especially on ground going to corn or soybeans. Many products have waiting periods before planting depending on soil type, so watch those closely.

Moisture throughout the area is variable. Some areas received rain last night, while our Southern territory missed out.
