Ultra Late Corn

Posted by romeethredge on November 30, 2012

Field corn planted behind field corn, second crop, is now about done since we had some temperatures around 28 degrees F last week. Thomas County Agent, Andrew Sawyer, and I looked at some this week that was black layered, in other words, mature, so it can soon be harvested for grain and dried. That’s the goal to reach maturity before a hard freeze.  It looked good to us considering when it was planted. It was sprayed 3 times with good fungicides and twice with insecticides. I estimate he will harvest 100 to 120 Bu per acre after harvesting 250 bu from the first crop.
