This growing season has had many challenges that could affect potential yield, including drought, insect problems, plant diseases and others. Many farmers in some areas entertain the idea of cutting corn for silage or have already done so. Certainly, we can expect an early grain harvest across the state. These decisions will present challenges regarding residue and tillage management this fall, as they did to a lesser extent last fall.
