Corn Update

Both irrigated and dryland corn are looking okay. Dryland is looking as good as it can. We’ve had less rain as we move east in the county. Corn on the central and west side has had almost an 1nch of rain for the last few weeks. There is rain expected for the weekend also.

This corn is our rust sentinel plot in Thomas County and has only nitrogen burn from foliar fertilizer. You can also see a few spots from Gramoxone drift as we’re planting cotton. None of this is anything to worry about.

We’re past most of our weed control. There are only a few fields where preemergent herbicides didn’t get activated and we’re dealing with pigweed.
