Market Journal Goes to the Field to Look at Seasonal Pest Problems - UNL CropWatch, July 22, 2013

July 22, 2013

On this week's Market Journal Extension experts look at scouting and managing soybean aphids, Goss's wilt, and gray leaf spot in the field.

  • Soybean Aphids—Entomologist and UNL Extension Educator Keith Jarvi discusses scouting, treating, and what growers can expect from this year's soybean aphids.
  • Corn Diseases—UNL Extension Plant Pathologist Tamra Jackson-Ziems explains the prevlance of Goss's wilt in Nebraska corn this year and shows how to scout of Goss's wilt and gray leaf spot.
  • Summer Soybean Science Institute—In 2012, Nebraska farmers harvested nearly 5 million acres of soybeans. Those beans are used in livestock feed and, in one form or another, in household products. This summer educators are also using soybeans to teach science.
  • Weather Forecast —Al Dutcher, UNL Extension state climatologist, gives his forecast for the coming week.

Next Week

With wheat harvest rolling across the country, we will talk with Frayne Olson, North Dakota State Extension economist, to look at yield results and current wheat market movement. Kurtis Harms will show how UNL’s Plant and Pest Diagnostic Clinic uses samples to identify growing problems, and we will look at the possible benefits and drawbacks of foliar
fungicide applications in soybeans.
