Does this corn have good color?


#1

They say the foliage color is a good indicator as to whether sweet corn is getting enough nitrogen. What do you think?


#2

If…
there isn’t enough topsoil, there may be yellowing later, but looks good at this time.


#3

Looks almost too green, might be the light. Anyway, I imagine it’s getting plenty of N. What variety are you trying?

Good idea with the straw, I had to hoe my corn patch today, we have 9 rows, about 25ft long each, so that was quite a chore. Also did the tater patch. Was trying to till the weeds out of the corn/cuke patch, but it started raining on me, so that was the end of that.


#4

I get some wheat plants (I guess that’s what they are) in the straw, and occasionally other weeds, but it’s manageable.


#5

Serendipity is the variety. It was near dusk when I took the pic.

The color looks good. I put more N on corn than any other crop. You want the deepest green you can get for corn. I usually apply about 4 small applications the last being somewhat earlier than your corn.
