Corn Looking Good

Posted by romeethredge on June 5, 2015

Field corn is looking good and many folks ate roastin’ ears from their fields last week, which is early for that. Here’s Mark Davis with some late last week.  Pollination has been good for the most part as well. The biggest concern now is keeping the water to it. IMG_6545

We are seeing and increase in stink bug numbers in many fields this week. I found 3 on one ear at this field’s edge.  There are reports of Southern rust in Florida so we are on the lookout but it has just been reported in Georgia in Mitchell county by County agent Andy Shirley.  Some preventative sprays have gone out. _DSC2635
