This week at Nutrien was not much different that previous weeks. To start the week, the other intern and I scouted around 1500 acres over a 2 1/2 day period of soybeans, sugar beets, and corn. It was quite interesting to see armyworm for the first time this year in corn, but it also was a very big problem for one of our growers.
During the remainder of the week, we staked the corn and soybean plot at our location and came in the next day to finish putting signs. All in all, we put up around 250 road signs this summer and the number will continue to climb.
