You, the group from Purdue along with your county extension agent set up a super field demo.

Great to see first hand what you folks deal with.

Nothing better than being in the field seeing and talking about real issues.

Kudos all around.Smiley Happy

Isc76cat,

 

SDS we have some areas that are fading... Does SDS start with some water damage to get the virus started??

Or low areas??

Re: It's OK,,,,, We can talk about it..

I had a chance to discuss this with the disease specialist from Purdue at ECIN's field demo Friday.

Cool & damp soil conditions at planting time and early development create favorable conditions for the fungus to

infect the plant.  Two days after planting the beans we had a frost that nipped the emerged corn.

The tips of the leaves were discolored by the frost and it remained cool for a couple weeks.

During that time we also had a couple showers that apparently created the right conditions.

The fungus infected the plants and killed them later when the toxin spread from the root as the plant neared maturity.

The picture I took is in a low area and there is a culvert under the township road near the

power pole in the right of the picture.  There is a tile line right up to the culvert and 2 lines perpendicular

in both directions but this area can stay wet for a while after a heavy rain.

At a coop seed plot the other day a agronomy guru reinterated what we`ve known about a connection between Sudden Death and Cyst Nematode at the foundation.  SDS seems to be a little subdued, but it`s out there, just wonder that since most beans planted these days are Cyst bean seed and treated that it didn`t help from making the SDS worse.

Re: It's OK,,,,, We can talk about it..

You guys talk corn andbeans but in the aug report they found 11 MMT's of wheat in china which effectively killed our market......that same ploy happened in 2003 when they "found" the same amount of wheat! That killed the wheat market untill 2009 !  The powers that be do not want higher food costs plain and simple

Re: It's OK,,,,, We can talk about it..

hwr,  The wheat in china never became part of the market..... so don't beat around the bush....

 

Usda killed our wheat market and has kept it low for the last four years of poor US production.....

 

It is a fact that is difficult to refute..

SW, my problem with the usda alledgedly killing the wheat market , is all the wheat guys that now want to grow corn, soybeans, and milo!! When i read about all the discounts that wheat has, i'd quit growing it and grow corn , too. Corn is corn

You really should peruse a dictionary sometime and learn the difference between a prediction and a projection.  There is more difference than you think.  The USDA makes projections and not predictions.
