From the Field Update from the Doolaard Farm: July 30, 2012
The Latham® corn and soybean plot of Doolaard Farms near Steamboat Rock, Iowa, looks excellent despite dry conditions. Corn is at the R1 to R2 stage, and pollination is coming along great. Latham LH 5779 SS is a standout number here, holding up to the low moisture and high temperatures. Soybeans are at R2 to R3 stages with pod set beginning. Grasshopper feeding has occurred due to the hot, dry weather. There is no prevalent weed pressure at this time and aphids have not yet been seen.
