EASTERN IOWA

Jerry Broders

Pollination has gone well in my area. These ears were grabbed from a field near Aurora in Eastern Iowa. Latham’s LH 5215 VT2 PRO RIB is 18 rows around and LH 5965 VT2 PRO is 16 rows around.

It’s hard for growers in Wisconsin not to show off their fields of LH 5245 VT2 PRO RIB. This field was planted early into cold soils. Quick emergence with a good early vigor score has helped this get off to a strong start. Excellent growing conditions have helped it develop nicely. It should be fun to see monitors when harvest rolls around.

Crops in Northern Wisconsin are hanging in there.  I checked some fields with a dealer and his customer, who is very satisfied with our products. LH 4241 RR, a strong silage hybrid with excellent starch digestibility and very good fiber digestibility. We also looked at LH 3547 VT2 PRO RIB and LH 3877 VT2 PRO RIB, which looked very good as well.

Below you can see L 1184 R2X on the left and E 1159 R2 on the right. They are both looking very strong and showing consistent stand height.

The last photo shows the consistent height of L 0982 R2. Its standability was put to the test! This field was hit with heavy wind and rains. Now I’m seeing some white mold. Remember to note areas with white mold and plant IRONCLAD brands, exclusively from Latham, on those affected fields. The best offense against white mold is a great defensive product.

Pictured here is a field of Latham L 0982 R2 that I was scouting for aphids. The corn picture was taken in a 160-acre field where LH 3877 VT2 PRO is looking very fine. My grandson Casen was helping me that day and was rewarded play time at the local playground!

Temps were below normal in perfect timing for the corn to flower in July. With most of the pollination done, temps have soared back to the 90s. These hotter temps should help keep the aphid populations in control and help put up some heat units that were lost in July. Now that August is here, harvest is just around the corner.
