Effects of recent cold rain on corn seedling viability and stand establishment

This morning I am getting lots of questions about what impact yesterday’s cold rain had on corn stand establishment. The short answer is the cold rain likely had very little impact on seed viability or final stands. For a further explanation, I would like to point you to a very well done video explanation by our new DeKalb Technical Agronomist, Nicole Stecklein. She is very knowledgable in agronomy and I encourage you to get to know her after meetings and other co-sponsored Liqui-Grow/DeKalb events.
