That is one of the great things about reading on this site. You get to see how others do things so differant than the way you would.

Like how your dairy farmers use their fields to plant corn and keep their cows inside; when we use our fields as pasture and buy our corn.

Things about how you have to do things because the ground freezes where as if we rotate grass types we can have green grass year round.

You guys wait and wait to plant corn because it is to cold; where as we plant as early as we can because the heat of late summer kills us.

 Re: Corn in reply to John in La, 04-14-2013 09:37:21  
Dad would not plant corn before May 9th, and I saw him replant the low spots more than once.

Now the experts say you lose yield potential here if you plant later than May 5th.....

I realize there have been advances in seed and seed coatings, but myself I don't get too worried about it. Every year is different.

One year I stopped planting corn June 6th, certainly there was yield loss on that but it was a tremendously wet year, only got 3/4 of the acres planted I wanted.

I agree with you. It is neat to see what is normal or common in other areas, different soil types. Really makes these forum interesting, and person has to remember my own back yard is not how the whole world works. ;)
