DuPont Pioneer Agronomy Update with TC Huffman

 

According to the latest crop update, 22% of Indiana corn is silking which is behind the 76% at this time last year and the average of 39%. But, July’s warmer weather will help the crop catch up. Due to our cool and wet spring and early summer, crop development is well of its average pace. TC Huffman, Field agronomist with DuPont Pioneer in Eastern Indiana, says the warming temperatures in July will help the crop make up time, “We are starting to see corn tassel, so we are set for pollination in the next few weeks.” He added that soybeans are also moving along with most fields in the R5 stage.  He expected pod set to begin in the next few weeks.
