Being early March, it is time to put out the annual corn flea beetle and Stewart’s leaf blight prediction based on the average temperatures the past three months (Dec, Jan, and Feb.).
Researchers at the University of Delaware will lead a project funded with $3.9 million from the National Science Foundation to study how genes in one type of corn may influence the plant's resistance to diseases, and compare the genomes of many types of corn to better understand how that resistance works.
MANA introduced Custodia premix fungicide for use on corn, soybeans and wheat.

Corn traders seemed disappointed by Thursday’s Export Sales report. Potential improvements in spring planting conditions have been weighing corn futures. Traders also seemed less than impressed by the weekly USDA Export Sales report, which stated last week’s result toward the lower end of the forecast range. May corn slid 2.75 cents to $4.9475/bushel in late Thursday trading, while December lost 2.25 to $4.9675.
