Mid/Long Season Plot Update: Will it rain this weekend?

Updated: Jul 23, 2019

“Weather forecast for tonight: dark. Continued dark overnight, with widely scattered light by morning.” -George Carlin

Spring had heavy, almost incessant rains, cloudy, and high humidity. Now humid air with higher temperatures is stressing the corn. Temps in the mid 90s today with heat indexes in the triple digits.

The curve balls of weather keep coming and weather is has been a big challenge this growing season. In some ways dry years are less of a challenge agronomically, as there is little us farmers can do to change the issue. However, in wet years we face a more difficult path to navigate in crop agronomy. This plot has definitely had its share of obstacles. Hail, High wind, heavy rain, heat. I guess we are just missing a hurricane and an earthquake yet. But, we are in an exciting part of the season. We have ears of corn to look at.


Below are the first pictures of the ears in the R3 stage.
