Today, Friday, May 27, the Purdue Extension Field Crops team will host a free, public webinar and teleconference to answer questions related to delayed planting.

The team includes specialists from agronomy, botany and plant pathology, entomology and agricultural economics departments.

Topics addressed will include:

* "Safe" corn hybrid maturities to plant over the next several weeks

* When and whether or not to switch to earlier-maturity soybean varieties

* Assessing available soil nitrogen from earlier applications of N fertilizer

* Weed control issues and options for late-planted crops or late herbicide applications

* Tillage issues and options for late planting conditions

* Looking ahead to late-maturity and harvest issues

* Crop insurance points of clarification

* Economics of prevented planting or switching from corn to soybeans

The session will run 2-3 p.m. EDT. To participate, dial 866-424-5561 and follow the voice prompts. To view the online portion of the session, log on to https://gomeet.itap.purdue.edu/anrtraining.

Those planning to participate are asked to register to Zana Griffey at zgriffey@purdue.edu by mid-morning on Friday so enough teleconference ports are available.

Additional delayed planting resources are available on Purdue Extension's Chat 'n Chew Cafe on the Corny News Network at www.kingcorn.org/cafe, or in Ohio State Extension's Crops Observation and Recommendation Network (C.O.R.N.) newsletter at http://corn.osu.edu.
