In 2016, there were essentially two planting seasons: one in April and one in late May.  Bill Meacham, with DuPont Pioneer, says this year really reinforced the importance of planting early, “We saw the yields in the May planted corn were less than the yields in the April planted corn.”center_img For growers in Southern Indiana, 2016 showed the benefits of using a fungicide, “We saw the southern rust disease come in; and, when we finalized the data, those farmers who applied a fungicide really did much better. I think a lot of growers will have this top of mind when they consider a fungicide for next year’s corn.” SHARE DuPont Pioneer Harvest Update 11/21/16 Weed pressure was an issue in 2016; but, in 2017, growers will have some new technology especially in soybeans, “We have some new Roundup Ready 2 Xtend varieties that we will introduce for 2017.”  Meacham added that weed pressure was considerable in many soybean fields this year and that growers are looking for some new technology to help control these resistant weeds, “The new varieties we are introducing are really performing strong, so there is a lot of interest by growers in that technology.” Home News Feed DuPont Pioneer Harvest Update 11/21/16last_img
