Have you taken net effective stand counts in your 2019 corn fields? The process is simple:
1. Measure off a 17' 5" section of row and count total plants.
2. Flag abnormal emerges including: doubles, skips, and delays. Each flag is a 50% deduction.
3. Multiply the number of flags by 50% and subtract it from the total count.
4. Divide that number by the total count and multiply by 100.
Make sure to avoid the best and worst areas of the field when selecting where to conduct counts. Also, take multiple counts throughout a field for a more accurate average.
