We have received a lot of phone calls about down corn throughout the season.
Early on, this issue was primarily caused by saturated soils and heavy winds that pushed the corn over at the root system.
Over these past few weeks however, corn stalks have been weak and hollow, breaking off at the ground level.
So what's going on? Check out this video to learn more about crown rot and late-season corn standability issues.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself or your local seed advisor.
