As promised, I have recent pictures of our corn. So you can stay as up to date as possible on this corn, I’m showing it to you today and making you wait to hear about our latest visitors.
I would like to go into detail about some of the major differences between dry land and irrigated corn but Brad isn’t here right now to answer my questions. For now I’ll just state the obvious difference – the one is watered by man and by rain (if it rains) and the other relies on rain – and show the pictures.
I’ll start with the dry land corn. Brad went to check the rain gauge at the field (It had another inch of rain!) yesterday and took these pictures. He was by himself, so we don’t have the person reference point for how tall the corn is. Sorry.
In contrast, the irrigated corn is much taller, doesn’t have wheat stubble between the rows, is already canopied, and is starting to tassel. They look like they’re different shades of green but that is only because of a different setting on the camera.
