If you’ve been drooling over the neighbour’s corn field and wondering how they managed to get such a nice looking crop, wonder no more! As Aaron Stevanus, market agronomist with PRIDE Seeds, shows us in this Corn School episode, the wins of this spring are a combination of timing, patience, homework and, yes, luck. From the fertility management, to herbicide decisions, to the all important seed bed prep, this Corn School episode spells out how a good start can stack up to a big win.
Follow along with field editor Bern Tobin, as Stevanus shows us first an early planted field and even a late planted field that are showing real promise this year. Also in this video, you’ll see how to estimate days until tassel, assess root development and learn about how cool nights may or may not impact corn development.
