Well - My best guess is pretty dang good - over all . If any of you have been down in the crop section - i have a N test plot posted down there and have been tracking corn progress over the last3 or 4 weeks .
This a map of our area - if you notice the yellow part - well that would be me and 3020 - it covers Shelby , Rush ,Hancock , Henry , parts of Marion , Wayne , Fayette
Here - we have had 1.8 inchs since July 4 weekend , this is at my place - the corn I post up is at my mom and dads place -- about 3/4 west of me - Someway - don't have rain fall at that place - but dad said he has not got that much .
I pulled these yesterday -- late day . as you can see - one ear has pretty good tip back - This did not surprize me = dry
As I said i have been checking this corn for some time - for 2 weeks straight this plot went 265 bpa - even with the dry weather it still comes out to 216 bpa -- pretty dang good for my part of the world .
BTW the kernel set is pretty good and is denting pretty good - so I should be close --- plus or minus some as to yield , but will still keep checking , the boys from Purdue will be here to check it and do stalk Nitrate test's SO more to come in the weeks ahead .
Remeber - I'm in the very small area or dry weather - I would guess there will be a lot more hitting the super home run here - in yield anyway .
So there's your Indiana update for today , Anybody want to help clean a bin today ?
Have a great day !

Y'all really have a problem with tip back. It is Gods way of letting you know it is planted thick enough. Until you see it, keep upping population. Besides the tip ain't 18 rows ,why would you want corn on the tip?

lmfao.. Is that all Indiana with it's perfect growing conditions and black dirt has to offer. A bunch of **bleep**ty pollinated ears that look like they have some sort of deformity going on.....and you're bragging abouit it. You've got to be kidding me. I'm sorry, but I've witnessed 265 - 300 bushel corn (not mine) and what I'm looking at right there ain't it. You've probably convinced the wife you're packing 12" as well, but it isn't working here with your corn. You might want to get your yield chart out and do a little refiguring there Kenny. Just saying.
What is your population? 45K? That's the only hope see for your delusion.

That looks like some of my earlier planted corn. How long are those ears? Seems like the ears and kernals are really large on the earlier corn. Unfortunately most of my corn and most of the corn in this area was planted later than optimum and some of it really late. The later corn pollinated better, but the ears and kernals are definitely smaller.
From my earlier post over on crop talk for those who missed it.
