Producer Page: Aphid arrival

It's that time of year again....................Aphid arrival.

It is time to begin scouting for this pest in your soybean fields. The University of Minnesota Ag Extension Service has developed a "speed scouting" worksheet to use when evaluating a field for potential treatment.   We are attaching this tool on our email and below for you to use.

It's been a tough year, but we are luckier than our friends in South-Western Minnesota, and hopefully we can see some recovery in the yield potential and the price.

One more thing.......be careful out there, whether mowing ditches or sweeping out grain bins, be sure to use common sense safety precautions!
