Assessing Corn Hail Damage

Published on Wednesday, June 07, 2017

While scouting fields in East Central Illinois last week I assessed a corn field that suffered from severe damage that resulted from a storm that brought 3 in. of rain and softball sized hail when the corn was at the V4 growth stage. 

Stand counts show that there were roughly 20,000 to 25,000 plants/A., an acceptable stand for its April 25, 2017 planting date. Check out the video below to learn more about the status of this crop and what the regrowth potential for this field is.
