I've included a picture of our first planting of sweet corn. This would have been planted on March 27th. It is tasseling right now, but unfortunately will be less than 4' tall and in most cases is 3' or less. It doesn't appear that the sweet corn will be a bumper crop. Their are a few fields of commercial corn that were planted earlier which have begun to start showing tassels. Most of the corn in our area should start shooting tassels in the coming weeks.
This past week we wrapped up our last pass of herbicides on our soybeans around the Ashland area. We continue to clean up equipment from spring planting and work around the shop. Our county fair begins this week so many will be attending that. Bring on the rain.
