Corn Harvest Good

Posted by romeethredge on August 19, 2011

Good reports of yields and test weights on field corn where we were able to keep it wet.  Some  poorer producing areas in corn fields I posted about earlier turned out to likely be nematode damage, as the Southern Root Knot Numbers from the sample were over 2300.  It would be a good idea to take a nematode sample to test from suspect areas in your corn fields.  For a nematode test you need a plastic bag to keep soil moist, take the sample from the root zone. Keep the sample cool  (ice chest) until you can get it to the Extension office or Lab.
