CRW Beetle populations on traps in soybean fields have risen this past week in the Lanark, Polo, north of Milledgeville, and northeast Sterling areas. The Morrison, Chadwick, southwest of Sterling, Thompson and Franklin Grove areas continue to be low this week.
We will continue to give you updates as the trapping continues over the next several weeks!

Tar Spot has been popping up again in the Midwest area corn fields. So far, it's presence has been low in this area, but Whiteside and Lee Counties have had positive findings for Tar Spot.
To help combat Tar Spot, a dual mode of action residual fungicide like Delaro has both preventative and curative properties to fight against Tar Spot and other fungal diseases in both corn and soybeans!

Another plot was planted today! This plot was at the Martz-Spears Farm near Lanark, Illinois. We're finally getting back into the fields after a long stretch of cold, wet weather. We hope planting is going well for the other farmers out there too!
So far, the CRW Beetle populations trapped this past week have been low to non-existent. We will keep you posted on this study!

We had a great time with our customers on a cold, snowy day at the Northern IL DKC, Winter Agronomy & Dicamba Training, that was held at the Mill Wheel Tavern in Milledgeville, on February 12.
Pictured above is Dekalb Agronomist Jim Donnelly (standing at the far, front-right side) presenting the Dicamba training. Jim also talked about tar spot and root worm management for the upcoming 2019 growing season.
A special thank you to Tom Wells and Hud Adams from Bayer who also presented training on Delaro Fungicide and Roundup Ready Xtend.
We truly appreciate you all who were able to join us, and we look forward to a successful 2019 growing season with you!
