Corn harvest 2003

D.R. Hicks, Agronomy and Plant Genetics, University of Minnesota

Corn will be mature and at harvestable moisture levels earlier this year because of the dry weather. This gives the opportunity for more field drying, which will reduce drying costs. However, the dry weather stress has caused premature dying as the plants have shut down and will likely result in increased stalk lodging and ear droppage.
