Agronomist says farmers will need to prioritize fields at harvest following hot, dry weather

Agronomist says farmers will need to prioritize fields at harvest following hot, dry weather

A DEKALB/Asgrow technical agronomist says the heat dome that sat over much of the Corn Belt recently changed the direction of this year’s corn crop.

Randy Niver, who is based in east central Illinois, says originally there were concerns that the corn harvest would be late and need a lot of dry down.  But, he says, the heat took a lot of that concern off for farmers.  “And the heat that is coming is going to make it go even faster,” he says.
