The Ground Rules of Corn Production

January 13, 2013 10:48 PM

A lot of acres in the South have been converted from cotton production to corn production during the past few years. Yet, the fundamentals of corn production are important no matter where you are growing it, says Ken Ferrie, Farm Journal Field Agronomist.

Ferrie provides an overview of the importance of the system approach to corn production, which he shared at Farm Journal’s Corn College in the South event. The event was held Jan. 8 in Vicksburg, Miss., and included presentations from Ferrie and Mississippi State University’s Erick Larson.
