Corn is progressing at a steady pace. Make sure you check corn height and growth stage before herbicide applications are made. Many post emerge corn herbicides are labeled up to 11" corn or V4 to V5. This coming week we will see plenty of sun and heat which will drive corn growth. If you have any questions about growth staging your corn please call.
Corn is off to a great start! Emergence seems to be very good on all Channel varieties. 196-77STX leads the Channel lineup in emergence and early season growth.
This picture shows a field of DroughtGard corn 198-00VT2P-DG off to a great start. This year there is over 300 acres DroughtGard corn in the Sparta area. We are excited to put this new trait to a larger test!
