Today, 28 June, I saw my first tassel on 107 day corn planted on 24 April 2012. This prolonged dry spell might slow both tassel and silk emergence on corn.
By the 4th of July, I would like to see all herbicide spraying completed on soybeans. By early July most soybeans will have begun to flower (R1). On 13 June, I noted my first flowers on my 25 April planted soybeans.
