Prioritizing Corn Fields for Harvest

Submitted by Jerry Hartsock of Cutting Edge Consulting and Research, September 24, 2013

If you expect corn to field dry down to 15.5% moisture and then harvest, it is highly recommended to monitor/prioritize fields for harvest as some may become very frail or fragile by then.  Early wet conditions followed by dry late growing season conditions can lead to plants cannibalizing their lower stalks and roots to feed the ear.  Weak ear shanks also can be another symptom as well.
