The rain is welcomed and needed. Moth traps with budworm and armyworm are on the rise. Corn borer, stinkbug, and black cutworm remain even. Tobacco black shank is increasing in fields and also the struggle with target spot this year. Corn is progressing very well and could be a bumper crop year. Soybeans are doing better, but again, struggling from early drought and height. Sugar cane aphids have been on the rise so look at your sorghum forage-type crops to see what is out there in the fields. Commodity prices still look pretty good into the fall and winter, but we will see after the September crop report if prices hold out a big crop in the Midwest as predicted. Any issues you are having please call the Granville/Person County offices for assistance.
