Agronomist encourages farmers to continue scouting fields
An agronomist says it will be critical to continue scouting fields throughout the growing season.
AgriGold’s Mitch Greve tells Brownfield “growing a corn or soybean crop is a continuum of learning. You’re developing your yield story not only for this year, but also taking what you can learn and the problems you have now and trying to fix that for next year.”
He says monitoring crop progress will benefit growers.
“Be looking for what your stand count is and what kind of plant you have you there,” he says. “It can help you make management decisions later down the road if you know what kind of crop potential you have out there.”
He says it’s also important to be flexible.
“Making sure that the plan you develop through the winter is working and as you come to issues, working with your trusted advisor to help create a new plan or find some way to navigate through problems and find a solution,” he says. “I can’t preach enough to scout, scout, scout.”
Greve’s coverage area includes Ohio and southeast Michigan.
