Iowa farmer with the integrity of the stems in the harvest in mind

Farmers in drought-affected areas pay attention to the integrity of the stems that enter the harvest.

Kelly Nieuwenhuis grows corn and soybeans in northwestern Iowa and says it rained less than seven inches in total on the brownfield between March and September.

“The plant is amazing (because it does everything to fill its ears, and sometimes it will sacrifice its stems to finish filling its ears, so mainly we. What he wants to do is complete a piece of that corn. “

He says he treated many of his fields with fungicides during the growing season.

“They probably let us sit a little longer (fields) just because the plants are in good health. But we did some reconnaissance and checkfields and stem quality issues. If you find, I want to do it first. “

Nieuwenhuis says he believes that despite extreme drought conditions, good genetics and late summer rains will result in near-average yields.
