Early Planting Update

*UPDATE*  The early planted corn in the planting date trial is emerging right on cue. Corn development research indicates it take approximately 115 growing degree days (GDD) after planting to see emergence. For the last 7 days we have been gaining about 18 GDD per day. Yesterday, March 22, at noon I could find just a few corn shoots peeking through and this morning they are popping up all over. Since last Friday, the GDD accumulation is around 120 GDD.
