With good growing conditions last week, corn is really starting to grow. This corn was having some nutrient issues up until last week. We had some much needed rain over Memorial Day in the county. Much of that rain came with thunderstorms were we had between 2 and 3 inches in town. Weather was pretty rough on Sunday and we had some hail. Here is some corn damage. This corn was planted around March 25th and now is about V7 to V9 growth stage.
Much of this field corn is tasseling and silking and producing ears. We are also seeing some herbicide drift and does look unsightly. Drift on these plants was a little pronounced, but it would not cause us any problems.
