Detasseling to begin soon in Hamilton County

As the dog days of summer approach, so do the arduous days of detasseling. While it is hard to predict exactly when the corn will be ready to detassel, most will say that it looks like it will be right on schedule or maybe a little ahead.

“We are planning on starting around July 12 and hope to be done by the end of  the month,” said Bill Hunter with Syngenta Seeds. “The rain and cool weather around planting time was tough on the fields. We planted a couple days before the rain hit, but it didn’t really affect stands. Our stands are     right at 99.9 percent of   where we thought they would be.” See this week's ANR for a detailed report.
