Ninth and Final Corn Silage Maturity Report
Following is the Ninth and Final Corn Silage Maturity Report courtesy of the Manitowoc County Forage Council.
According to reports, leaf diseases such as Northern Corn Leaf blight and Anthracnose are flaring up in most fields. The
rate of plant dry down is increasing rapidly because of the onset of leaf diseases.
Six of the 11 fields have been chopped or are ready to be chopped when field conditions allow. Two are scheduled to
be harvested today with the other three fields scheduled for harvest between October 12th and 16th.
Please be sure to thank the agronomists and cooperating farmers who are participating in this Manitowoc County Forage Council and Manitowoc County Extension project.
