The late-summer drought this year has stressed corn plants throughout the region.  Munson Hybrids Agronomist Craig Allaman said plants in drought conditions will start to canabilize their lower stalks to compensate...


The weakened plants can also be more susceptible to diseases...


And, the combined factors of weakened stalks and the potential presence of disease makes crops more at risk of bad weather...


Allaman said we are 2-3 weeks behind our typical harvest progress, putting us on pace to wind up in mid-November when the region is usually done around Halloween.
