Oneida County Scouting Report – June 30, 2017

This week’s crop report (PDF).

The main issue is potato leaf hopper numbers over threshold in heavy alfalfa fields.
 
The second major issue is the potential for DON in wheat this year. Setting combines to blow out infected kernels and sampling for DON analysis.

Many soybean fields will need herbicide application soon

Many corn fields will need to be side dressed with N soon.

Weather Outlook – June 29, 2017

NOAA Northeast Regional Climate Center, Cornell University

Last week temperatures ranged from near-normal to 4 degrees below normal. Precipitation ranged from a quarter inch to over 4 inches (in Jefferson County). Base 50 growing degree-days ranged from 50 to 160.

Showers and thunderstorms possible through Saturday, with humid conditions, but turning dry and seasonable Sunday and into the week…

Today temperatures be in the upper 70’s to mid 80’s. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible, especially in northern areas. Some storms could be severe with the threat of heavy rain, damaging winds and hail. Overnight lows will be in the 60’s.

Friday will be humid with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will be in the 80’s. Overnight temperatures will be in the mid 60’s to low 70’s.

Saturday’s highs will be in the 80’s, again with humid conditions and showers and thunderstorms likely. Overnight temperatures will be in the mid to upper 60’s.

Sunday, highs will be in the upper 70’s to low 80’s with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. Overnight temperatures will be in the upper 50’s to mid 60’s.

Monday’s highs will be in the upper 70’s to mid 80’s. Lows will be in the upper 50’s to mid 60’s.

Tuesday will have temperatures in the mid 70’s to low 80’s.  Lows will be in the upper 50’s to low 60’s.

Wednesday, temperatures will be in the upper 70’s to low 80’s with scattered showers and thunderstorms possible.  Lows will be in the low to mid 60’s.

The seven-day precipitation amounts will range from ½” to near 3” .

The 8-14 day outlook (July 6-12) favors above-normal temperatures and above-normal precipitation.

Comments Off on Hail damage: Resources for replanting decisions

Hail damage: Resources for replanting decisions

Reports of hail have come in from various areas of the state, worse in some areas than others.  If hail was significant in your area it will be important to get out and look at fields to assess damage.  Corn is quite tolerant of defoliation at the growth stages being reported around the state, as long as the growing point was not injured.  See attached tables with estimated yield reductions based on percent defoliation and stage of growth.

Additionally, find some pictures and field information from a past hail event at around the same point in the year (June 30, 2006) with corresponding yields of the damaged field.

In the event that the field does need to be replanted there are still some options.  A recent newsletter from Tom Kilcer at Advanced Ag Systems provides timely information on remaining options for forage needs.

With any emergency forage the first questions are when can we get it in the ground and what will it yield; however, it is very important to think ahead on how this extra forage will fit into your system.
·         Who will you feed it to?
·         How will you store it so it is accessible for feeding the to the intended group of animals?
·         How much of it will you have, will there be enough tons (acres planted x yield) to incorporate into your feeding programs without drastic disruptions in the animals diet that could lead to other issues?
It is good to involve your nutritionist in conversations about what crop options exist and how they could best be utilized.

Please contact us or your local CCE specialist with any additional questions.

Check your alfalfa fields, especially new seedings for Potato leaf hopper. I have found that many fields are over threshold.

Wheat growers… prime time to look at wheat heads in your fields for fusarium.

Capital Area Ag Report Supplement

A couple more timely tips for field crop management.  Send me a picture of your crop or pest questions.  Or just give me call or send an email.

Ag Report Supplement, June 16, 2017

  • Wet plus cold has killed lots of corn seedlings in some fields.  Replanting may be needed.  To make a decision, refer to “Estimating Yield and Dollar Returns from Replanting Corn” at https://www.agry.purdue.edu/ext/pubs/AY-264-W.pdf.
  • June 20th is Cornell’s last date for planting soybeans.  If you do plant after that, go to a higher maturity group (from Group 1 to early Group 2); increase seeding population by 15K to 20K; plant on narrow rows; and control weeds early. (taken from “Crop Alert”, Mike Stanyard)
  • Check out the “Crop Alert” by Mike Stanyard, Northwest NY Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Team for other timely crop information, at https://nydairyadmin.cce.cornell.edu/pdf/nwny_crop_alert/pdf54_pdf.pdf.
