Without any new herbicide in the pipeline, soybean growers are asking many questions about new herbicide resistance traits that could be making their debut during the 2016 growing season.
Growers in the Northwest part of the Burrus footprint may find the title of this article a little odd. Fields fertilized but not planted? How could that be possible?
The Burrus agronomic team does not believe much nitrogen loss occurred during recent rainfall, and our team believes it is way too early to call for rescue N.
Burrus is continuing to use the Crop Optimization Planner (COP) by MyFarmsSM that combines proprietary product knowledge collected by the Burrus research team with data provided by growers to help manage and improve crop production.
With new herbicides in the pipeline; so many growers await the approval of the introduction of soybean varieties with various herbicide traits.
During the last two years, waterhemp has exploded in soybean fields. Are they herbicide resistant?
Cover crops have grown in popularity over the last several years, and they will (undoubtedly) continue to grow in popularity.

Burrus Hybrids partnered once again with Illinois AgriNews to sponsor the 2015 Illinois Farm Family of the year award.
Will the decrease in rootworm pressure impact 2016?
Researchers know that prolonged rainy, cool weather decreases rootworm field to field migration. Frankly, if rootworms didn’t survive within a specific field, neighboring fields could not boost that field’s beetle population.
After pollination has occurred, the corn yield potential is set. We can't add to the corn yield potential, but we sure can try to preserve that yield potential!
Unfortunately, due to the heavy amounts of rain during the vegetative growth stages of soybeans, we are now starting to see the above ground symptoms of Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS).
We have been hearing about the importance of early action on weeds while they are small, at a max of about six inches in height.
First generation European corn borer makes for some pretty easy scouting.
When it comes to plant disease spread, we usually assume a rainy season, humidity, moisture, and even dew are favorable conditions for foliar corn diseases.
This “curious phenomenon” as termed by R.L. (Bob) Nelson of Purdue University is thought to occur when corn shifts from slow development to rapid development.
Testing/commercializing non-GM hybrids is a significant and unique commitment at Burrus.
Keeping track of post-emerge herbicide families can get a little tricky.
Yes, soybeans can be vulnerable to pythium and Phytophthora roots rots (and even Rhizoctonia root rot).
