Prospects for corn and soybean production estimates

Current corn and soybean prices reflect, in part, the large U.S. crops just harvested. The USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) will release the final estimates of the size of those crops in the second week of January. Any changes from the November acreage and yield forecasts that substantially alter the production estimates would influence price prospects into the spring of 2016.


CSNT shows low accuracy for evaluating corn deficiencies

A high percentage of corn fields may receive substantially more N fertilizer than is economically optimum, for which there are no obvious visual signs. Conversely, fields deficient in N have obvious visual cues, such as stunted growth and yellowing leaves. The Corn Stalk Nitrate Test (CSNT) has been used for two decades by farmers and consultants as an end-of-season tool for evaluating field-specific corn N management practices.


Field Forward look at the Enlist Weed Control System

From Ohio to Nebraska and Minnesota to Arkansas, growers throughout the United States participated in the stewarded introduction of Enlist corn and grew Enlist soybeans for seed production under the Dow AgroSciences’ Field Forward program in 2015. The Field Forward program provides select growers an opportunity to experience new technology before it is commercially available.
