I do not believe the corn has grown at all since my last report. It has tassels now but many of the stocks seem dried out and possibly dead. This field will be used for ethanol, not human or animal consumption – so maybe none of this matters. Maybe the farmer will be subsidized regardless of how it looks in the end.
It was a bad year this year. Seems to be making up for previous good years. I think some of our neighbours have given up and started to cut it already.
