Proper drying and storage can add value to corn crop 2
A lot of southern corn production was hampered by wet conditions in 2013, which slowed maturation of the crop. In other years, there are dry conditions that push harvest sooner than expected. In both cases, management of drying and storage can make or break the quality of grain once it’s delivered to a buyer.
Charles Schlabs: 60 years of growing more corn with less water
Charles Schlabs has been part of an irrigation evolution. From gushes flowing from tailwater pits that once flooded bar ditches, to hi-tech center pivot nozzles that rarely waste even a drop of water, the Hereford, Texas, grower has seen his water-use efficiency improve nearly every year since 1953.

Nematode management important for top yield soybeans
To establish and maintain a good soybean program, many southern farmers may need to nullify nematodes. Left untreated, the minute critters can stop a crop in its tracks.
Rotation eases soybean weed, disease, insect problems
We’ve battled pigweed resistance since I was a kid,” says Gary Burton, a southwest Arkansas grower who has weed management at the top of his soybean production checklist.
soybean rust
Close brush with Asian soybean rust has kept Arkansas grower on the alert
SBR, first discovered in the continental U.S. in 2004, is a foliar disease caused by the fungus Phakopsora pachyrhizi. It can be aggressive, capable of causing defoliation and significant yield loss if infection and spread occur under conducive environmental conditions, says Tom Allen, Mississippi State University Extension plant pathologist.
Corn stalks
Continuous corn can work, but good management a must
Continuous corn will likely see a slight reduction in yields compared to corn rotated with soybeans or cotton — but with overall production capabilities still high, some growers remain sold on a corn-after-corn program.
