Half-Way Date for Planting is TODAY.  And it is WET
5-15-2024

The worn-out joke about ‘if you don’t like the weather in Virginia, just give it a few hours and it can change fast’ is so true that it’s not funny.  This is certainly the case for most of the 'Ag types' as we must make plans several days in advance that are highly dependent on the weather.  In the middle of May it is not uncommon for us to have a lot of chores on the table all at the same time.  Primarily cotton thrips, and cotton planting are at the top of the list not to mention corn.  Currently with cotton, almost no one is finished and the cotton that was planted over two weeks ago with only seed treatments is beginning to get a lot of damage from thrips. Heavy rain makes this worse by diluting earlier treatments.  As far as setting priorities, the most important task we have as soon as we can drive in the fields is to get this early cotton sprayed with Acephate.  If you have ThryvOn varieties or in-furrow insecticides, then you have more time for solid thrips control.  We still have over 2 weeks to finish planting; However, there’s a dilemma with the indeterminant late maturing varieties having excess growth and immature top crop when planting after May 15th, and some of this needs to be exchanged for the faster maturing options as these 'early varieties' will fit the second half of the planting season better on ALL soil types (even light soils).
