Subject: RE: How can this not matter?

Some of my farms have received the least rain of pretty much anywhere in the midwest according to maps. Half inch in 60 days. So I walked into one of them this morning after receiving a half inch of rain and pulled some ears...the first one I pulled looked normal in the husk but only about a third of the kernels pollinated the length of the a seven inch ear only had about 150 kernels spread out on the ear. My stomach dropped. Then I pulled a half a dozen more ears that looked the same on the stalk...every one had great pollination and could make a good ear yet.

So I agree. Its absolutely amazing how this corn has held on with basically no rain. Pollinated fine for the most part. With some august rains, it could do 160 with is probably a 30 percent drop from average potential. But we absolutely have to have some august rains for that to happen. And there are still some dead dead spots.
