Stormy Weather on Corn

Posted by romeethredge on April 17, 2015

We had some driving rains and high winds this week, although they were spotty.  Some corn was blown sideways, as you see here.  I feel like it will recover quickly, however. We are at the V6 growth stage. I dug up a plant and you can see that it was planted deeply and has good underground nodal roots that kept these plants from falling completely. In a couple of weeks, by about V9, the above ground brace roots will be growing in.  We can advance 2 leaf stages a week with these good growing conditions.
