Growing conditions this season have set the stage for potentially severe lodging, and with the strong winds late last week, lodging problems are starting to show up in some fields. Lodging risk is high this year because of the wet spring followed by some prolonged dry weather during grain-fill, as well as pest and disease pressure in some fields.
