Another week with near-normal temperatures coupled with adequate soil moisture in most areas has crop and pest growth coming on strong. Most of the corn and soybeans has at least emerged, with corn to stage V6 and a few soybeans to stage V3. Expect rapid growth as temperatures are projected to be well above normal for the coming week. Light rains the past week relieved some emergence problems due to soil crusting. Weeds are growing rapidly as well, and postemergence herbicides and cultivation are prime activities as the weather allows.
