Fungicide on Corn As the corn fields start to tassel, it is time to think about how a fungicide could help protect your yields. With the wet weather we have been having, some diseases have got off to a head start this year. Contact your NCCA Agronomist to talk about your options. Ag Lime Stockpiling If you plan to spread any Lime on your farms this fall, now is the time to start thinking about getting the lime stockpiled so you know you have secured your supply. Also if you have wheat stubble fields that need lime, this would be a great opportunity to get it spread. Contact your local NCCA Agronomist to line it up.
Reminder: Midwest Ag Closes at 3:30 pm
