Wasn't that corn green yesterday?...
Just when I thought we had handled all the challenges this season, corn 'round here started getting funky. Streaks of yellowed corn following anhydrous applicator patterns - a familiar issue - but this time it seems more pronounced. Maybe the good corn is just getting greener by contrast.
I know we have been here before, but many fields that were just disked before going back to corn are pretty ragged after looking fine the last two weeks. I kinda remember cool weather and nutrient uptake issues can cause this.
Somebody tell me it'll be OK.

Meanwhile, we're having some of the most localized downpours I have ever seen. You can watch your neighbor get an inch in minutes while sizzling in dust.
