A crop expert says farmers who have battled white mold in recent years need to plan ahead.
Lynn Justesen, tech services lead for row crops with UPL, says planting affected areas later has proven results. “Because (planting) early you get that better chance of cool, wet weather, and a better chance of Sclerotinia to be built up,” he says. “Those will also be the most vegetatively grown beans. They’ll be the biggest beans and they’ll stay wet longer under canopy.
