“We always recommend fall soil sampling,” says Tony Lenz, Stine corn technical agronomist. “While we might not think about soil sampling until after harvest, what growers should be doing now is scouting for areas where crops are struggling and marking those areas, so you know exactly where to go back and conduct a soil sample after harvest. This should also include areas where you detect insect and soybean diseases.”
