|Wind damaged corn|
The corn is now at the dough stage, or R4. As you can see, our drought conditions have stressed the corn kernels. This ear has a poor kernel set at the tip. Thankfully this ear has 18 rows, but the rows won't have as many kernels per row.
Now onto my hog's "backyard." The soybeans continue to grow nicely. The plants are now at my shoulders (keep in mind, I'm 5'2", but still that's tall!)
The soybean plants now have reached Full Pod (R4)
|Look at all those soybeans!|
Lets hope we get some good rains so the soybeans can fill nicely and so the corn can maybe recover a little.
Did you get rain this week? It seemed like a lot of rain fell across the United States but at the same time it seemed to be spotty.
