End of Season Corn Management

Insect, disease, and environmental stress during grain fill can compromise corn yield potential and quality.  Monitoring the crop through harvest can help guide decision making during grain fill and provide insight for managing the harvested crop and planning for next season.  Late season stress can reduce the plant's photosynthetic capacity and trigger remobilization of carbohydrates from stalks and leaves to feed developing kernels which may weaken the plant structure and overall health at the same time.
