As harvest continues for growers around Ohio, it also continues for Syngenta agronomists at the Marysville, OH, Grow MoreTM Experience site.
While Ohio growers may not have experienced as much pest pressure this season due to an early-season frost and low moisture levels throughout the summer, agronomists suggest still utilizing harvest time to evaluate their product performance.
Derrick LeBeau, Syngenta agronomic service representative, tells area growers to pay attention to how clean rows are to evaluate weed pressure. He also recommends looking at leaf tissues in the middle of the rows when harvesting, because scars will still be visible if there was any disease this season.
By evaluating the pressures the fields faced this year, growers will be able to make more proactive management plans for next season.
