    Special episode: Early 2023 planting and agronomy updates

    Special episode: Early 2023 planting and agronomy updates

    It's late April in 2023 and it's still wet and difficult to get field work done across the state. It's a bit too early to discuss much about pests, but as a lead-in to future early-season pest issues that could result from this late spring, it's important to look at agronomic issues related to planting when soils are still cold and wet. Dave Nicolai chats with U of M agronomists Drs. Jeff Coulter and Seth Naeve about current field conditions and when to plant corn and soybeans.
