Wow. 37.7 Million acres affected in the Midwest with an expected liability of 6 Billion.

On our post yesterday I mentioned the Soybean Gall Midge damage that we are seeing in our Manilla soybean plot. I went in for a closer look today and was able to get some good pictures of the larvae. At the present time, there's not much you can do about these little guys, other than know they are there. Research is being done on control options, but since they are a fairly new pest, there isn't a published control method.

We didn't escape the storm damage that rolled through Iowa yesterday. We were not hit as hard as some areas, and we are thankful for that. A couple observations I noted as we were straightening signs and putting them back up: 1) The field signs on the soybeans were knocked over, all facing Southeast. The signs on the corn were all leaned Southwest. Apparently the wind was swirling in both directions. 2) The outside row of soybeans had some plants that broke over, laying Southeast. After closer inspection, it appears we have Soybean Gall Midge damage that I was unaware of. That is a new pest to Iowa within the last few years. The wind broke the stems in the outside row exposing the issue. 3) The continuous corn block took some damage as I expected. We are researching native CRW tolerance in some conventional hybrids and comparing the damage to single and stacked GMO rootworm traits. This leads to some stand-ability issues, but we're going to have some of that when you do this kind of work. 4) The corn on soybean ground demo had some damage as well, which was more hybrid specific. Lots of variables to consider
