Month old Corn

Posted by romeethredge on March 28, 2014

We now have some  field corn that has celebrated a month of age today. I took some photos of it yesterday. It is growing with some challenges due to cool temperatures causing yellowing and slower growth and sand blasting.

 Stands look pretty good so far, but we are having to deal with crusting soils in between the rains. We need to wet the crust in most cases to soften it to get all our plants up evenly. We are getting some sub surface unfurling and loss of plants due to the hard crust.

Here’s some sandblasting that occurred with the high winds this week.

Soil crusting has been a problem, hurting us in some cases.

A light irrigation does a lot of good for this problem.
