Summary

​This grower panel addressed some of the challenges faced this year by most growers in our region, including seed quality, weather, insects, and off-target herbicide movement. While most of the region had good moisture coming into planting, those areas that received rain after crop establishment also received some damaging hail to go with it. Shelley Huguley wrote a nice piece on this, which is available online.
