Minnesota CropCast: Corn and soybean update from Jay Zielske and Jared Goplen

In today’s CropCast, Seth Naeve and David Nicolai welcome veteran regional agronomists, Jay Zielske and Jared Goplen. Jay works for Corteva in south central Minnesota, while Jared works for Wyffels Hybrids covering western Minnesota, northwest Iowa, and a few counties in South Dakota. These two gentlemen shared their observations on harvest progress and reported yields in their areas. One cannot discuss variable yields in 2023 without a focus on what brought us here. Planting delays, poor stands, and a chronic drought stressed the crops. In contrast, plant diseases tended to be reduced. If yields are slightly better than anticipated, where did those bushels come from? Jay and Jared also provided advice on selection criteria when ordering 2024 corn and soybean seed inputs.
