Corn growth and development – I see that many cornfields are starting to approach the V-6 (six collar) stage of growth. According to the ISU publication titled “Corn Growth and Development,” at V-6 we have initiated growth for all the leaves, the tassel, and ear shoots, although many aren’t visible without a microscope. Full ear potential isn’t completed yet – but we have a start!

Soybean Yield Potential – It’s been an interesting (but not necessarily a good) year trying to get the crop planted in NW Iowa.  For corn, as mentioned in my last edition, the Corn Replant Checklist might be of help to you. Here are a couple of soybean tables on the effect of planting date on yield potential and on the yield potential of different populations from a 2014 article by Mark Licht, ISU Extension Cropping Systems Agronomist, titled “Early Season Soybean Replant Decisions” that might be of help in making decisions.
