Corn planting is underway in many areas now, and the crop will soon emerge. As it gets established, consider going out into the field with the grower to evaluate whether it emerged evenly or unevely. If it appears uneven, there's a strong likelihood that the grower's planting practices or preparation contributed to the problem. It's important information to know, because uneven emergence can hurt corn ear counts.
