Common Early Season Ailments of Corn
Cool and wet conditions can be described as temperatures below 50 degrees F and soils unfit for field work. Plant growth is slowed dramatically under these conditions. Unemerged corn is at risk due to the possibility of seed reserves being used up before emergence.
Corn Replant Options
The decision to replant a field is one of the most difficult decisions a producer may face early in the growing season. Experience has shown that each year some of your acres will not achieve desired plant populations due to adverse environmental conditions. If you find yourself in a potential replant situation, there are several factors you need to take into consideration prior to replanting.
Corn Leafing Out Underground
In addition to successful germination, successful emergence of corn seedlings is an important early step in successful stand establishment. The synchronization of coleoptile development and the cessation of mesocotyl elongation usually results in the appearance of the first leaf from the tip of the coleoptile just as the coleoptile breaks the soil surface.
