Soybean research verification program update for June 20, 2014
Author: Chris Grimes, Program Associate - Soybean/Wheat Verification Coordinator

The fields have really turned around this week. Herbicide applications continue to go out as weather permits. Insect pressure remains below treatment levels in all the verification fields this week. Disease pressure is minimal. We are trying to get the fields cleaned up and ready to start irrigating.  A few of the fields received rainfall and bought a little more time before irrigation initiation.
