Early Peek at the 2013 Ears

Today, July 22, I looked at 111 day corn with brown silks in both corn-on-corn and corn-on-soybean ground. The girth aspect for both ears was excellent with 18and 20 rows around, but the corn-on-corn was exhibiting some unfilled ovules while the corn-on-soybean was entirely filled.


In an area where water moved across the field after heavy rains, the corn has a higher level of leaf firing than the adjacent area where no water flowed across. The area where the water flowed across the soil was more saturated and had a higher level of nitrogen loss.
