Brazil - early planted fields are in anthesis and in general weed control looks good. In the production fields, Dr. Concenco reports no disease pressure, but there is some blast impacting different varieties in the plots. The last planted field is in V4. No fields are reporting any concerns with the wheel tracks under the center pivots. The rains slowed toward the end of the week and three fields received between 8 to 9mm of irrigation late in the week. Soil moisture content remains very high with dificients of less than 20% in all areas. If there are no rains, all fields will be irrigating this week.
