He states that the pressure of the brownfield corn root worm can lead to stability problems.

“With sufficient (corn rootworm) feeding, the plant begins to stay at root and ground level,” he says. “So we try to inform producers and the people we work with to prioritize those areas and ensure that they are harvested quickly, quickly and in a timely manner. is.”

In addition to rootworm pressure, Martin says ag inputs, supply chain issues, and falling births are also producers’ top priorities.
