Sidedress is Starting off Slow

  • 6 votes

We're starting sidedress but the corn is still a bit small for y-drops.  We had some stunting, leaf damage and some pretty bad frost damage last week that we're keeping an eye on for re-plant.  Another crazy spring! How are things in your neck of the woods?

Nice video! experiencing the same here. Slow growth , cold temps. Lost alot of color in the corn last week with cool cloudy weather. Question is...........How much if any yield have we lost in these early growth stages?

Slow start up here in So MI also. Lack of consistency. Atleast we had good weather and were able to get the crop planted timely. Crop protection activity ramping up, a week or so out from sidedressing. 

Good question Billie-We will have to see come fall. I think cloudy days, on top of cool weather does more damage than we think.
