What a difference a rain makes! Check out the before and after drone photos taken 4 days apart in the “Overall & Agronomy” gallery. About 15mm fell between the first and second sets of photos after some fairly significant drought conditions.

Corn at V14 and some varieties are 4 leaves to flowering. Corn is demonstrating stress in the loamy areas and compacted areas of the farm. This is due to the heat stress and lack of rain. Overall the plot looks good with great potential.
