Corn Tasseling and Silking

Posted by romeethredge on May 30, 2013

Corn is tasseling and silking in deep southwest Georgia. Pollen is beginning to shed.  It has that corn smell to it that one farmer said calls in the stink bugs? It looks good and is really moving now that we have warm, bright sunshine and plenty of irrigation water. This is a critical time for water. Some more stinkbugs are showing up, especially near small grains, but in some other areas now. Northern corn leaf blight is showing up in some fields that aren’t corn after corn now. I have NOT seen any Southern Rust but I’m seeing a good amount of common rust.
