Default crop pics

heres a pic of one of my corn fields and a bean field. this is the best corn i have, the rest of my corn is about as tall as i am. I kept track of the growth of this field. I did some walk arounds at stage v-4/v-5. thats very important because by v-6 (knee high) the corn has determined lots of info for setting yields. so at that v4-v5 stage i did a top dress of more nutrients of what we saw the plants needing, also did a micro nutrient foliar feed at the same time. this corn on the 1st of july was knee high, by the 5th of july was almost chest high, by the 12th of july was just over my head, and this pic is of yesterday. now that the plant has tasseled it is done growing the plant and is now filling the ears.

the beans are about 6" from canopy. meaning there is about a 6" strip open between plants. earlier on this field i had to do a fungicide treatment because we got some hail on this field. at the same time i did some foliar feed to help keep the plant green during a round up pass. round up ties up manganese and can cause the plants to yellow for a week or two. so i saved the plant some stress and hoping that it will help in the yields.

Dayum your a tall fucker too, NICE!! I was actually in the bean field behind my house yesterday and was shocked at how thick it is. You can barely tell where the rows are and there is absolutely no space between plants.

Nice looking crop there John. We're not going to have anything that looks nearly that nice this year. We've had too much rain and it's bee way too wet to spray about 75% of our beans. We've only been able to fill the sprayer to 500 gallons this summer so we can make it through when we've been able to spray.

we have had similar rain as you, the big difference is soil, we have lighter ground on top of a soft clay, that lighter soil on top of the clay will let the moister go down into the soil then move horizontally ontop of the clay before soaking down. you can see on the hills in the spring where the clay layer is. water will be coming out the side of the hill in the dead furrow at that level.

i did also cultivate all the crops this year, deep to, get that ground broken up and oxygen into it. that helped a tremendous amount.


a guy from michigan posted pics a few weeks ago that i saw, he was planted the same day i was but his corn was 2-3 feet taller because of the different climate and soils.

Brings back memories of when I was a kid living in North Carolina. Right across from our house was a field that would be planted in rotation of sweet corn, alfalfa, beans, then fallow. I loved to run through the corn playing hide-and-seek. The owner told us we could pick the sweet corn whenever we wanted. When it was ready you could pick and ear and eat it right there it was so sweet.

The corn where I was working went from waist high to about 7 1/2 - 8 feet in about a week. Lots of flooded-out areas here in western MN though.

Our corn is at least 8' tall most of the fields I go by. Fields here in Michigan are looking pretty bad ass.

Fields around here are so-so. The Crookston area has developed into some sortof strange Banana belt that gets just enough rain, but not so much to cause damage or flooding.

Everywhere else looked shitty. I'd say 50% of the fields I look at every day were about 50% drowned out. Some of them look better beings as the few plants that survived happen to be filling in and hiding some of the bad spots, but it still sucks a lot.

Driving through WI today fields looked good, radio said state average is only 3" below normal now so the fields are picking up a lot due to the hot weather.
