Growth and development of corn– It usually seems that when corn gets to the 5th to 7th leaf stage we often have fields that begin to look more “up and down.” We are at that time when the seed (seminal) root has not gotten any bigger since about the V-1 stage, and now need those nodal roots to take over and become the food source for these growing plants. If they are inhibited by anything, then growth is slowed.
