SOYBEAN GROWER UPDATE
July 12, 2018
A good fungicide has proven to give a yield increase of 6-8 bu per acre over non-treated soybeans in university test. One spray per season is usally enough. To control velvetbean caterpillar, and make loopers and stink bugs less of a pest, add Dimlin. Look close at your cotton, peanut, and soybean fields, especially if they are close to a corn field. There have been several generations in your corn already. Group 5-6 soybeans planted in late May early June are now in R3. ( R-3 = Pods at least 3/16 inch on the fourth node from top of plant ) You lose some effectiveness if you apply too early.
If you have Three Cornered Alfalfa Hopper and/or Stinkbugs, think about putting in some pesticide. Watch for Three Cornered Alfalfa Hoppers, Kudzubugs and Stink bugs, have been found in most fields.

Good fungicide at R3 growth stage **
Dimlin + 1.2 lbs of solubor per acre
Plus (For insect pest)
Acephate (Orthene), Karate , Brigade , etc.
If you are trying for high yields now is the time ( R3) to put out 30 pounds of N per acre.
