Corn School - Evaluating Frost Damage On Early Planted Corn

Episodes:

How early is too early to plant corn? The simple answer is that there is no simple answer, at least one that doesn’t involve a healthy dose of hindsight. Depending on a number of factors outside everyone’s control, you can have a banner year planting early or a total bust. It also depends on if you’re willing to risk replanting or not. Are you Kenny Rogers or George Costanza? The gambler or safe and predictable?

  1. from what i’ve seen walking fields this last week. The early planted corn is no better off than corn planted the 3rd week in april. For the? most part producers were quite lucky that soils stayed dry and the early planted seeds survived.
