Re: Blowing tassels

Not even close on I-80 east.  Probably 3 weeks at the earliest for me is my guess.

Re: Blowing tassels

I'd like to get enough rain to bring the crops
Up and activate the herbicide

Re: Blowing tassels

Most corn here is between 4 inches and knee high. It will be a while "here."

Waist high here, it will be a while yet. If only we had some heat!

Re: Blowing tassels

No rain here in SE SD either to activate the herbicide, except for the earliest planted corn, which looks good.  Going to be spending the weekend spraying roundup on all the other acres (corn and beans) as the weeds are getting bigger than the crops.  Since May 25 we've had one rain - 0.17 inches.

Re: Blowing tassels

Today traveled from McCook Nebr. south to Beaver City, Oklahoma.... 83 hwy all the way.....

 

This drive only saw dreams of tassels. 

 

Nebraska had 13 inch corn at best and a lot of 10 inch............. and a lot of grain sorghum (looked like)    tiny stuff

 

Larger corn all south of Garden city at 15 inches to maybe 18 inch

 

better on the south end....... but even south around the Oklahoma line  it is a month away from considering tassels.  Unless it will tassel at 4 feet............. It looks better than that and has water....

 

But weather today is 70 degrees for a high......... yesterday 101.

 

Looks like gramoxone has become the new roundup fixer and the neighbors all have the speckles to prove it.

 

The overwhelming issue is the shock of reality as to how far behind this corn/bean crop is......

Dont' be bitchin

about your short corn.    Mine was planted on April 13, survived 19 inches of rain, then it quit,   last rain was mid May....1/2".....we missed all the last rain.....zip zero nada.   Our now 4' tall April planted corn has tassles emerging, no silks to be seen.
