How's the stalk health of your corn? Will it stand a while?

It may be wise to be patient for a while. Mudding up the field won't make farming next year any easier. You can feel the effects of compaction for a long time.

My corn experience is from WI and IL, a lot different than your climate. It can stand quite a while up here in the fall (or winter!) and isn't as vulnerable as, say, wheat. However, we don't have your heat or humidity causing grain quality issues, or stalk health issues. That same heat should help dry out your fields sooner, too.

Mud here in November will freeze up faster than dry out.

Curious- How wet is the corn grain?

The corn was 22% before all this rain.We just got at least another inch in the past hour.Our real concern is the quality.I have heard reports that guys 30 miles west of us have ran into severe quality problems(rotted ears,sprouting kernels,ect)so bad they have quit harvesting.The corn we are in is in good shape for now but we dont know how long it will last.I am not looking to bog from one end to the other,I mainly was thinking of the mud hog because of the bottoms on a lot of the land we run on.We will definetly be waiting now no matter if you have 4WD or not but some of the bottoms wont dry out before the corn is in bad shape.I rember trying to get corn out in the great flood of 94 and the back wheels was always what stopped me.That year I toted chains so much I thought they were a permanent part of me!
