In the last two weeks, some southeastern South Dakota farmers have had too much rain. Dave Poppens tells Brownfield it’s unusual to be wishing for less rain in the first week of July.
“The low spots are definitely stunted and yellowing,” Poppens told Brownfield Ag News Monday. “It’s affecting the yield there, and where it hasn’t drowned out it just doesn’t look very good right now.”
Poppens says his plan is to fly on urea fertilizer where rain has leached nitrogen away from corn roots.
