I know the old saying is “knee high by the fourth of July”, but how about tasseled corn by July 9th? I’m doing some crop scouting up by Galesville today and in a lot of the fields I’m seeing V14 to V15, and this earlier planted field has its tassels emerging this morning.
A quick reminder on fungicides on field corn. Please make sure you have full tassel emergence on 100% of the field and the axillaries (little side branches) on the tassels are folded out. An example of a product you could look at in the very near future would be Headline AMP at 10 to 14 oz per acre.
