Winter survival of alfalfa is influenced by several environmental factors including temperature, snow cover, and soil type. Plant characteristics such as winterhardiness also have an impact on stand survival. When winter conditions are severe, alfalfa stands may be reduced. Therefore getting an accurate stand evaluation is critical for estimating yield potential and deciding whether to keep an alfalfa stand.
As planting time approaches and wet soils remain across much of Minnesota, many growers may be thinking about switching to earlier maturity corn products to offset late planting. Yield potential can decrease with delayed planting due to a number of factors, including a shorter growing season, insect and disease pressure, and moisture stress during pollination. Switching to earlier maturity corn products for late-planting situations should not be an automatic decision.
Cool, wet, poorly drained soils can be typical during spring planting and crop emergence. These conditions favor the development of fungal pathogens that cause soybean seedling diseases. Early season insect pests may also damage soybean seeds and seedlings. Acceleron® Fungicide and Insecticide Seed Treatment Products for soybeans can help protect seed and seedlings from pests.
For 2013, more Gold Country Seed products feature the Acceleron® seed treatment system. Designed to complement new seed and trait products, Acceleron can improve stands and plant health to maximize performance potential.
