Crop Progress: Corn To Endure Nighttime Heat While Silking

July 2, 2018 06:49 PM
 
Unfortunately, the nation’s corn crop of which 17% is silking is due to face warm temperatures during this sensitive time.

In their Monday Crop Progress report, USDA outlined both crop conditions and crop progress for this week. According to the agency, 40% of the corn in Illinois is silking compared to the five-year-average of 11%. In Missouri, 48% of the corn is silking compared to the five-year-average of 24%.

 

Unfortunately, the nation’s corn crop of which 17% is silking is due to face warm temperatures during this sensitive time. Warm overnight temperatures are known to reduce yield, according to USDA meteorologist Brad Rippey.

The forecasted hot nights and hail damage over the weekend could alter crop conditions before USDA’s report next week. This week USDA says 76% of the crop is rated good to excellent. Wisconsin is this week’s garden spot with 33% of the crop rated excellent. Corn farmers in Texas continue to struggle the most. There, 28% of the crop is rated very poor or poor.

  I am Penelope from Texas. I was stuck in a financial situation in May 2016 and i needed to refinance and pay my bills. I tried seeking loans from various loan firms both private and corporate but never with success, and most banks declined my credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to a Godly woman a private loan lender who gave me a loan of 620,000 EURO and today am a business owner and my kids are doing well at the moment, if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan without collateral , no credit check, no co signer with just 3% interest rate and better repayment plans and schedule, please contact norton loan firm finance Company (nortonloanfirmfinance@gmail.com).
