Frost damage on corn at the NWIARDC

The mild weather this spring allowed for an additional planting date in a corn planting date study. The corn that was planted on March 30, experienced freezing temperatures on April 10th, 11th, and 12th. The photos here show the range of damage that was observed on this corn. Some plants were completely dead, some were dead above ground with the growing point below ground still green and others had minimal leaf damage. It remains to be seen whether many of the plants without visible damage to the growing point will be able to recover.
