New corn growth publication available to order

Corn growth and development publication

ISU Extension’s corn production team has completed a new publication, “Corn Growth and Development,” that replaces “How a Corn Plant Develops” -- the standard reference on corn growth and development for more than 40 years.

The 2011 publication provides an in-depth look at corn, from the moment the seed is planted all the way to maturity. It takes much of what is known about crop physiology and combines that with field agronomics to provide students, corn growers and agronomists the current and technical information they want and can use. Order it from the ISU Extension Online Store.
