Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour – Eastern Leg – Day 2

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Update:Final Indiana numbers are in from the eastern leg of the 2019 Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour. Indiana’s average estimated corn yield was 161.46 bushels per acre, down 11 percent from last year. Soybeans numbered 923.94 pods in a 3×3 foot square, off 29 percent year over year.Day two of the Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour sees Ohio Ag Net’s Joel Penhorwood leaving Noblesville, IN and heading north before his particular route takes their vehicle west. They’ll end the day in mid-Illinois, recapping the day by getting final results from Indiana. Keep in mind the updates below are just from one route’s stops and may not necessarily be representative of the entire tour’s findings. Check back here at the end of Tuesday for full results.Stop 16 – Livingston County, ILCorn: Milk stage corn with a lot of potential, if things go right. Quite a bit of variability. In the three samples taken by scouts, kernels around were 12, 16, and 20. Is there more 20 in this field? Or 12? A major difference. 163 bpa from our sample.Soybeans: Another very disappointing field. Small beans, not canopied, and just rough. Pod count was low.PFTour19_Day2_Stop16_IMG_4004PFTour19_Day2_Stop16_IMG_4005PFTour19_Day2_Stop16_IMG_4006PFTour19_Day2_Stop16_IMG_4003PFTour19_Day2_Stop16_IMG_4004PFTour19_Day2_Stop16_IMG_4005PFTour19_Day2_Stop16_IMG_4006PFTour19_Day2_Stop16_IMG_4003PFTour19_Day2_Stop16_IMG_4004PFTour19_Day2_Stop16_IMG_4005Stop 15 – Livingston County, ILCorn: Black dirt, black dirt, black dirt. Some spotty population on an otherwise good looking field. Just slightly yellowing towards the root. Decent ears, but nothing to get excited about. 178 bpa.Soybeans: Very small and far behind. Has yet to canopy and just doesn’t look good. Just 624 pods in a 3×3’ square. Herbicide damage very likely.PFTour19_Day2_Stop15_IMG_3999PFTour19_Day2_Stop15_IMG_4001PFTour19_Day2_Stop15_IMG_4002PFTour19_Day2_Stop15_IMG_3997PFTour19_Day2_Stop15_IMG_3999PFTour19_Day2_Stop15_IMG_4001PFTour19_Day2_Stop15_IMG_4002PFTour19_Day2_Stop15_IMG_3997PFTour19_Day2_Stop15_IMG_3999PFTour19_Day2_Stop15_IMG_4001Stop 14 – Ford County, ILCorn: Some ear worm in two of the three sampled ears. Now getting into that beautiful black soil over this way. Starting to fire up, but shows hopefully what fields should be trending towards overall. 201.2 bpa corn.Soybeans: A great big beautiful field with, as we’ve been seeing on most of the trip, great weed and insect control. 1,630 pods in a 3×3’ square. The scouts were impressed.PFTour19_Day2_Stop14_IMG_3994PFTour19_Day2_Stop14_IMG_3995PFTour19_Day2_Stop14_IMG_3996PFTour19_Day2_Stop14_IMG_3991PFTour19_Day2_Stop14_IMG_3992PFTour19_Day2_Stop14_IMG_3993PFTour19_Day2_Stop14_IMG_3994PFTour19_Day2_Stop14_IMG_3995PFTour19_Day2_Stop14_IMG_3996PFTour19_Day2_Stop14_IMG_3991PFTour19_Day2_Stop14_IMG_3992PFTour19_Day2_Stop14_IMG_3993Stop 13 – Iroquois County, ILCorn: Very far behind in maturity. These had just pollinated and the trend of Indiana’s crop getting more mature further west doesn’t seem to be holding true across state lines. 102 bpa corn.Soybeans: Parts of this field further out were starting to yellow, perhaps a bit soon. Could be a spot of SDS or nutrient damage.PFTour19_Day2_Stop13_IMG_3988PFTour19_Day2_Stop13_IMG_3989PFTour19_Day2_Stop13_IMG_3990PFTour19_Day2_Stop13_IMG_3987PFTour19_Day2_Stop13_IMG_3988PFTour19_Day2_Stop13_IMG_3989PFTour19_Day2_Stop13_IMG_3990PFTour19_Day2_Stop13_IMG_3987PFTour19_Day2_Stop13_IMG_3988PFTour19_Day2_Stop13_IMG_3989Stop 12 – Kankakee County, ILCorn: We’re back into the blister corn now as we take our first field of Illinois. From the road, quite a few of these fields aren’t as good as I had thought for the second I state away from Ohio. But the Illinois part of the tour is still young. 121.5 bushel per acre field with low ear count.Soybeans: This is a mature crop, but still setting pods. No disease, very clean, good field.PFTour19_Day2_Stop12_IMG_3983PFTour19_Day2_Stop12_IMG_3984PFTour19_Day2_Stop12_IMG_3985PFTour19_Day2_Stop12_IMG_3982PFTour19_Day2_Stop12_IMG_3983PFTour19_Day2_Stop12_IMG_3984PFTour19_Day2_Stop12_IMG_3985PFTour19_Day2_Stop12_IMG_3982PFTour19_Day2_Stop12_IMG_3983PFTour19_Day2_Stop12_IMG_3984Stop 11 – Newton County, INCorn: The final corn field in Indiana had major tip back, but was good on most other factors. 168.3 bpa.Soybeans: This was an irrigated field, but something had happened that has caused nearly zero pods on these beans. Not good.PFTour19_Day2_Stop11_IMG_3977PFTour19_Day2_Stop11_IMG_3978PFTour19_Day2_Stop11_IMG_3977PFTour19_Day2_Stop11_IMG_3978PFTour19_Day2_Stop11_IMG_3977PFTour19_Day2_Stop11_IMG_3978Stop 10 – Jasper County, INCorn: Full dough ears, starting to dent. This field wasn’t the healthiest we had seen, but population was strong. Tip back was strong throughout. The further west we go, the further along we are in maturity fairly consistently. 177 bpa corn.Soybeans: Record amount on this side of the tour so far for this vehicle. 1,872 pods in a 3×3’ square. Beautiful soil.

A pretty rough field as far as health. Definitely nitrogen deficient and that has hurt yield. This corn is almost in dent.Soybeans: Probably the prettiest soybean field we have seen with nice edges and great rows. Very clean and low pressure on the insect and disease side. Not enough though as it came at 924 pods in a 3×3’ square.PFTour19_Day2_Stop9_IMG_3966PFTour19_Day2_Stop9_IMG_3968PFTour19_Day2_Stop9_IMG_3969PFTour19_Day2_Stop9_IMG_3965PFTour19_Day2_Stop9_IMG_3966PFTour19_Day2_Stop9_IMG_3968PFTour19_Day2_Stop9_IMG_3969PFTour19_Day2_Stop9_IMG_3965PFTour19_Day2_Stop9_IMG_3966PFTour19_Day2_Stop9_IMG_3968Stop 8 – LaPorte County, INCorn: A fair amount of disease, but plant count was good. Plenty of very small ears that didn’t make it in the count. 188.25 bpa estimate here.Soybeans: Nice looking field of beans that had plenty of pods with good fill. 1,641 pods in a 3×3’ square let this field boost to the top for the day.PFTour19_Day2_Stop8_IMG_3962PFTour19_Day2_Stop8_IMG_3963PFTour19_Day2_Stop8_IMG_3964PFTour19_Day2_Stop8_IMG_3961PFTour19_Day2_Stop8_IMG_3962PFTour19_Day2_Stop8_IMG_3963PFTour19_Day2_Stop8_IMG_3964PFTour19_Day2_Stop8_IMG_3961PFTour19_Day2_Stop8_IMG_3962PFTour19_Day2_Stop8_IMG_3963Stop 7 – Starke County, INCorn: Quite a bit of weed pressure in this field, along with bird and deer damage. Population lowered a bit as a result. Also some ear worm present, more so than other fields. 158.5 bpa estimate here.Soybeans: Definitely mot the worst beans we’ve seen, but also not quite the best. A bit of insect pressure, plus these beans have put a lot of effort into getting tall (36”) than compared to others. 1,534 pods in a 3×3’ square.PFTour19_Day2_Stop7_IMG_3957PFTour19_Day2_Stop7_IMG_3958PFTour19_Day2_Stop7_IMG_3959PFTour19_Day2_Stop7_IMG_3955PFTour19_Day2_Stop7_IMG_3956PFTour19_Day2_Stop7_IMG_3957PFTour19_Day2_Stop7_IMG_3958PFTour19_Day2_Stop7_IMG_3959PFTour19_Day2_Stop7_IMG_3955PFTour19_Day2_Stop7_IMG_3956PFTour19_Day2_Stop7_IMG_3957Stop 6 – Marshall County, INCorn: A fairly heavily diseased field with plenty of disease above and below the leaf ear. Corn smut continues to be apparent. Overall unhealthy, though ear size seemed to be fairly strong. 166.6 bpa estimate.Soybeans: A less than stellar field that just looks like it’s lacking nutrients in sandy soil ground. Volunteer corn as well.Stop 5 – Marshall County, IN Corn: Farther along than most we’ve seen that had some monster ears. Population was questionable. 172.6 bpa estimate. Spotty throughout and plenty of strange things in the field, including smut, tassel ear, and more.Soybeans: This field had a crazy amount of pods coming in at 1,578 in a 3×3’ square. Second best of the day at the time of the scouting. The field did have an irrigation pivot in it, though these beans weren’t directly under its fire.Stop 4 – Kosciusko County, INCorn: This field looked bad from the outside looking in, but we ended up in an area with fairly good population and ear fill. Some tip back will be had in this field, and there is some question as to if things will make it to maturity. These ears are in late milk stage, early dough. The rough yield estimate was 151.37 bpa.Soybeans: Spotty population here. It looks like the farmer had some trouble with water and planting earlier in the year. We basically counted potential. Things were very immature and still blooming. Overall healthy, but very late. Bean count came in at 1,140 pods in a 3×3’ square.Stop 3 – Whitley County, INCorn: The farthest along corn we’ve seen with great ears in the dough stage to back it up. 192 bpa. It is starting to exhibit more disease pressure than others we’ve seen, a sign of the fields maturity to this point.Soybeans: A whopping 1,638 pods in a 3×3’ square brings this stretch to a good number. The beans were special from the road, but really stood out in both their plant population as well as number of pods (and good pods) per plant.Stop 2 – Huntington County, IN Corn: A number of double-eared stalks in this field, and surprisingly they are sharing well with their neighbor ears. This field is nearing dough stage and looks to end up nicely. 147 bpa average, which was a bit surprising, but ears only had 12-14 kernels around sampled ears.Soybeans: A bushy field, though plant population appeared to be down. No disease or insect pressure to be seen. Flat pods and generally immature. 792 pods in a 3×3’ square.Stop 1 – Huntington County, INCorn: This was a good looking field of corn, but there were some drowned out spots as we walked in the field. This corn has great potential, but it is very immature. It has just gotten into blister stage. Estimated 140.5 bpa for the first stop of day two.Soybeans: Sudden Death Syndrome starting to show on these beans. Short! 686 pods in a 3×3’ area.last_img read more

Ruben has set the standard – Kovacic

first_imgChelsea midfielder Mateo Kovacic insists teammate Ruben Loftus-Cheek has set standard other midfielders at the club must follow, after his impressive hat-trick against BATE Borisov in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night.In a team lacking a proven goalscorer apart from Eden Hazard, manager Maurizio Sarri has put pressure on his midfielders to provide more goals, which is an essential asset.Kovacic explained, according to Daily Mail:“We are playing very nice football, people like it, but we can do much better.”“The midfielders need to score more goals, me obviously, and Ruben scored three against BATE so he did well.”Lennon insists Celtic will seal its Europa League Manuel R. Medina – August 28, 2019 The team’s manager, Neil Lennon, believes his team is ready to take advantage of its 2-0 lead against AIK Stockholm and qualify to the group stage.“We need to play much better because we have a lot of quality in our team. I hope to score soon too, but in the end it’s important we play good football and push forward.”Meanwhile, Kovacic insists his only concern is surviving three matches a week and keeping Chelsea in title contention, amid talks about his future.Known as The Professor for his linguistic skills, the Croatia international concluded: “It’s good, I’m a little bit tired. I was not used to playing every three or four games and here it is very tough football. You can’t relax against anybody so it’s a little bit difficult but I really enjoy it.”“There is no pressure. Why? We like to play football and we are enjoying every moment, every training session, so it’s just joy, not pressure.”“We are still unbeaten but we need to look forward because we are not first in the league so we need to look ahead to get as many points as possible.”last_img read more

Scholes hopes Man United can take advantage of unhappy Chelsea

first_imgPaul Scholes hopes to see Manchester United inflict further misery on Chelsea in Monday’s FA Cup clash.The Red Devils suffered their first defeat under interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Tuesday at Old Trafford to Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe’s second-half goals have left United at a big disadvantage for the return leg at Paris on March 6.For now, however, the Red Devils’ focus will be on this Monday at Stamford Bridge in a fifth-round tie with Chelsea in the FA Cup.After suffering his first setback as United coach, Solskjaer will be looking for a response from his players as he chases a third FA Cup title and his first as a manager.But Chelsea are also looking to bounce back from their own struggles following heavy defeats to Manchester City and Bournemouth across their last four matches.Therefore, Scholes is wary of the Blues threat heading into Monday night’s encounter.“Ole will want to win something as manager of United,” Scholes told the Daily Mail.“The FA Cup, after the result against PSG, could be the only thing they could win.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“Chelsea look in trouble at the minute. Will they bounce back themselves? Ole will have to deal with that.“They’ll be disappointed. Chelsea will be looking for a big recovery. From what you read it doesn’t look like a happy camp at the minute so hopefully United can take advantage of that.”The former midfielder also added that he has no “issues” over United making Solskjaer the permanent manager at the end of the season.Scholes added: “I’d have no issues whatsoever [with Solskjaer getting the job].“I know people will start to question because now because he’s lost a game but that was PSG.“That could happen to the most experienced manager in the world because PSG are a top team.“I think for what he’s done so far he definitely deserves a chance.“I always knew there was talent in that squad. I think everyone did. Ole has come in with a smile on his face, put his arm around the players – there so much talent in that team. He’s given them freedom and you’ve seen the results.”The Chelsea and United FA Cup match will begin at 8:30 PM (CET).last_img read more
