Corn and Soybean Emergence and Early Growth

S. L. Naeve and D.R. Hicks, Agronomy and Plant Genetics

A major portion (about 90 percent) of the Minnesota corn acres are planted but only ten percent has emerged. For soybeans, only 28 percent of the acres are planted and only a very few (1%) have emerged. Cold seed zones do not promote germination and emergence.
