Friday in the Field - June 2

Jun 02, 2023

With the 2023 growing season now underway, Dylan Meyer, Account Manager at the Lost Nation location, scouted fields to prepare for post-emergence herbicide spraying.

While out in the field, Dylan found very little evidence of weed pressure. With these dry conditions, it's hard to tell if there will be much pressure from fungus. Dylan recommends during this stage, a V5 fungicide not only helps fight against funguses that might form on the plants but will also help the plants manage water.

Dylan noticed that there might be some weed pressure in other fields, though the main issue right now is the lack of moisture and rain. With this dry and hot weather eastern Iowa has experienced lately, he has noticed weeds building up a waxy cuticle. To help counteract this build-up on the weeds, he recommends ensuring you have the proper adjuvants and herbicide ratio.

Dylan has been an account manager for River Valley Cooperative for five years. He enjoys the agronomy side of his career and likes working directly with farmers and customers. Dylan enjoys his job and enjoys helping growers choose the best possible products for their operation.
