Corn Standability Hurt By Weekend Storm In Nebraska And Iowa

Corn Standability Hurt By Weekend Storm In Nebraska And Iowa

 

The recent storms not only wiped out part of the crop in northwest Iowa and northeast Nebraska, it may impact the stand-ability of the corn.  Cole Cotton, Pioneer Account Manager in central and north central south Dakota says farmers will need to check fields and schedule harvest to take corn with weaker stalks first.

As far as soybeans….the rain rehydrated soybeans and could cause some shattering after they dry down.  However, Cotton doesn’t anticipate it being a problem.

He says before the rains delayed the harvest farmers were taking out from 30 to 50 bushel beans and 100 to 170 bushel corn.
