This year several farmers are doing a great job of rotating corn fields to soybean fields. No-till is an excellent practice because we take care of weed and disease problems with crop rotation. Only one problem, someone forgot to tell the slugs.
The residue from last year’s corn crop is a perfect environment for slugs to live and thrive while consuming young soybean plants for their evening meal. While we continue to have moist and cool conditions, slugs will continue to thrive.
