Crop Report for Week of May 3, 2021

— Written By

Monday we are getting a little rain – hope we get more because we need it. Corn is up and soybeans are being planted and need more moisture. Tobacco being set between the wind and dry plants are flopping over and rain would help tobacco. Moth counts for tobacco budworm are way up so keep an eye out. Also, I am seeing a few army worm moths and quite a few black cutworm moths. Looks like lots of soybeans are being planted in the area and prices are good for fall delivery at this time. I am working on many different types of plots this year from corn, sorghum, tobacco, insects, disease, and others.
