  1. This is exactly what I saw out scouting yesterday south of Napanee. We had the first significant rainfall after over 6 weeks of drought last week. We were even seeing new silks forming and elongating at the tips and pollen shedding again from the tassel. These plants are amazing! They really want to make us some yield!
