ILLINOIS CROP PROGRESS REPORT
By Abigail Peterson
ISA Conservation Agronomy Manager
 
With many soybeans emerged by May 30th of this year, the majority of soybeans are well into late blooming and beginning pod stages across Illinois.

Not too many pests have been noticeable apart from some Japanese beetle feeding. Looking at the soil surface of no-till or cove crop fields, earthworm middens are not hard to find and decomposers like centipedes are scurrying across residue. 

Post herbicide applications have been wrapping up and field activities like fungicide applications will be starting. 

Field walking this week I have seen great weed control in cover crop fields. Walking in drowned out areas of the field can be a reminder of how weed escapes like waterhemp don’t take long to establish.  

Although weather has been variable across the state within the last thirty days across a large portion of central IL, rain accumulation has ranged from 4-15 inches. With warm temperatures and saturated soils, disease presence of phytophthora in soybeans has become evident in some parts of the state. For northern IL counties lack of rain, dry soil conditions and warm temperatures have led to moderate to severe drought.
