Kansas and Ohio Field Notes

August 17, 2020

“Our corn is in surprisingly good condition. Right now, I would say that most are good, and some would be considered excellent. Even some of our less productive ground will do fairly well this year.  The fields we planted first are close to black layer while the corn planted later in the spring is in the late milk stage of development.”


– Lowell Neitzel, Kansas farmer

“Our corn crop is looking better since we got rain on Friday. Different fields vary, but all got from one-half to three inches of precipitation. In general, the amount of moisture we have now should get us through finishing.  The fields we planted earlier are in good condition but may yield less due to a dry early July. Right now, the cooler temperatures and morning dew are helping quite a bit.”


– Patty Mann, Ohio farmer
