Time to start planting?

03/21/2012 - 03/30/2012

Reports show a farmer in southeast Iowa was planting corn last weekend, and it turns out he's not the only one rolling in the field. But early planting doesn't always translate to the best yield. "Planting in late March or early April has almost never produced higher yields than planting in late April," says University of Illinois Extension agronomist Emerson Nafziger. In a dozen trials over the last 3 years, he adds, the later-planted corn has outyielded the mid-March plantings 9 times.
