“What good ears you have”


These aren’t the ears the wolf means from Little Red Riding Hood, but the ears from our fields. Notice how there is very little ‘tipping back’ at the top of the ear, meaning that there was little to no environmental stress during pollination. Some say that it’s during the early R stages that determine seedling size and ear growth. Others say its during pollination. This is yet another reason we have a corn surplus this year.
