Corn Setting Ears
Farmers in St. Charles County Missouri seem to be collective believers in early planting of corn. I would estimate that 25 to 35 % of the corn in the river bottoms there is setting, ears, silking, tasseling. The smell of corn pollen is in the air. Moisture is good, so it seems to be a favorable time for that to happen. There are also some soybeans that are knee high. Luckily none of those are fields that I have left to sample.
