End of season yields: What did Hybrid-Maize predict?
So what happened in your fields? Hybrid Maize predicts yields based on perfect conditions — nothing limiting and no pest/disease issues. If you aren’t seeing the highest potential yields in your fields, consider the following yield limiting factors that occurred this growing season.
- In many fields, corn was planted into cool, wet soils.
- In some fields uniform stand establishment was hindered by Pythium or crop residue piles caused by floating debris after heavy rains.
- There were varying degrees of pollination problems due to high temperatures in late July (an effect not simulated by Hybrid-maize and likely to reduce actual yields). We are hearing that rainfed yields have been better than expected, but irrigated yields may be below expectations.
Regardless, yields are still very good despite another interesting growing season with many potential pitfalls due to weather events.
