The last six weeks have been extremely dry throughout parts of Ontario. Crops across the board have suffered as hopes for bumper yields have been deflated by the stress of prolonged hot and dry conditions. Corn in particular started with a great deal of promise, but now sits in a grey area as to how it will finish. So the question now is, what kind of yields can we expect after these adverse conditions?
Looking at our corn post-pollination can give us our first glimpse into what our corn will yield. In this episode of the Corn School, Ken Currah from PRIDE Seeds brings us through a field in one of the driest areas of Ontario to evaluate corn pollination there and get the first real look at yield potential.
