The accumulation of Growing Degree Units (GDUs) is behind normal in many areas due to cooler and wetter conditions as compared to normal. In addition, in many areas, crops went into the ground much later than normal.
As a result, what pests and diseases you may typically be looking for say in mid-July, may not align with current crop growth and development stages. In addition, pest development and feeding and many diseases may be out of sequence. As a result, growers may need to make some adjustments in how they evaluate crop health and development stages, choose and apply nutrients, herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides to assure they are getting the best use/function of the products and the crop they’ve invested in.
