DuPont Pioneer Agronomy Update with Dan Emmert

Emmert_DanWhile there are places in Southern Indiana where the corn has been planted and early crop development looks good with plants in the V10 or 11 stage, there are also some areas where farmers are still struggling to get the crop planted.  DuPont Pioneer Field Agronomist Dan Emmert told HAT that counties just south of Terre Haute is a prime example, “These guys get hit every time it rains, and they are really struggling to get their corn planted.”  He added that many are getting ready to make the switch to soybeans. He said, in some areas, up to 25% of the intended corn acres will not get planted or switched to soybeans.
