I Love It When A Plan Comes Together

Corn is emerging. This corn was planted April 14. It takes about 150-160 heat units to get corn out of the ground from 1.5' deep. Ideal conditions this past week has corn emerging that was planted two weeks ago. Early stands will be excellent due to mellow seedbeds and gentle, warm rains.
