Corn decisions growing for farmers

A different variety may be needed in order for farmers in Door and Kewaunee Counties to harvest corn rather than discontent this fall. Soil moisture was a big factor in farmers not getting out to their fields to plant until the early summer and out to harvest until after the first snow had fallen this winter. Kewaunee County UW-Extension Agriculture Agent Aerica Bjurstrom says farmers will need to consider corn varieties that mature at a faster rate this year.

While the corn grows quicker, Bjurstrom says the yields are usually lower than varieties that take longer to mature. Farmers can get more answers for their planting and harvesting questions on February 27th at the UW Extension’s forage and soil meeting at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds.
