The warm temps concern me for crusting after so many of the areas have experienced some pounding rains right after planting and now the heat that is expected. But the good news is the impact it has on emergence time frame. In comparison to our historical weather the next three days of heat is getting our crop out of the ground way sooner. Example we typically gain on average 9 GDU’s per day this time of year. We are gaining 34 additional GDU’s in this stretch. So basically 3.8 full days of GDU we are gaining in this short stretch. So we are anticipating corn planted last week Wednesday should emerge in 10 days rather then 14 days based off of historical data.
