    Early planted corn not slowing down!

    Maizex hybrid MZ 4092DBR was planted on April 18, 2015 by Leon Leclair of Grand Pointe, Ontario. 

    On July 10th, tassels and silks are already visible.

    Leon’s goal was to plant a high-yielding hybrid that can meet the demands of an early harvest and premium market. So far, so good!

    Leon plans to get in and spray a fungicide treatment to maintain as much plant health throughout the season, as well as improve his yield potential.

    Frequent rainfall and some reports from Ontario and other nearby jurisdictions of the potential for increased leaf disease pressure have growers keeping a keen eye on VT fungicide application options, and in some cases, starting to scout and prioritize fields.
