  • Is it too late for corn?

    Although new crop corn and soybean prices are near record highs, planting conditions remain poor for some of the corn crop. About two-thirds of the corn crop has been planted in the state, but grain farmers are concerned whether they can get their entire corn crop out in a timely manner.
    An associated question is when should a grower stop planting corn and switch to soybeans. In order to help answer this question, growers need to estimate potential yield losses for late planted corn and compare the associated profitability against soybeans.
