Irrigation started back this week on all our fields. We have been using soil moisture sensors and telemetry units in combination with our Online Irrigation Scheduler to make irrigation decisions. It has been working well and has saved us some early irrigations.
We have been scouting the fields, and we have NOT found any Southern rust. We have been finding active common rust, but it is not an economic threat to our corn crop.
