In this episode of the Corn School, PRIDE Seeds’ market development agronomist Ken Currah takes a look at corn development stages, starting with tasselling and moving through development, to help growers evaluate maturity and yield potential. By tracking hybrids from pollination to the black layer stage, Currah shows how growers can assess each hybrid’s adaptability to their farm.
Currah also discusses how he and some of his grower customers work with Weather INnovations and its weathercentral.ca website to track corn development stages based on planting date and specific hybrid type. He also discusses how growers can use the website’s drydown calculator and CHU tracker to help plan silage and grain corn harvest.
