Southwestern Conditions Update

Have looked over some corn recently that was laying over at ground level.  After looking at the field, it was evident that the corn was building up carbohydrates in the plant during the cold and dry weather.  Then a rain came with some heat, dirt got washed into the whorl and a rapid growth happened and the leaves could not support the plant and it laid over.  With some heat, the plant straightened up and the leaves added cell strength and straightened up.
