Roger Elmore, ISU Extension corn specialist, discusses the things to consider when making the decision whether to replant corn or not. In the second crop minute this week, Erin Hodgson, ISU entomologist, encourages farmers with corn emerging to scout fields for black cutworm. Elmore refers to the table on page 12 in the Corn Field Guide for current relative yield potential of corn by planting date and population.
