Late planting penalty for corn in northern Illinois

Posted by Russel Higgins - Corn

For most farmers planting date is dependent on spring weather. In effort to quantify the change in corn yield we have a long term study at the NIARC varying planting dates. This year our planting dates were
  • March 29th
  • April 19th
  • May 9th
  • May 29th

This study has two hybrids, a full season and a shorter season, and will also include a fungicide treatment on each planting date.
