Common Early Season Ailments of Corn

Cool and wet conditions can be described as temperatures below 50 degrees F and soils unfit for field work. Plant growth is slowed dramatically under these conditions. Unemerged corn is at risk due to the possibility of seed reserves being used up before emergence. Corn seed reserves are generally good for 21-28 days. Emerged corn is at low risk because primary roots and initial leaves are developed.
