What a day here in penna,it was a high of 96 with 76 percent humidity. Philly had a heat index of 109 degrees. We just had an awesome line of thunderstorms,three inches of rain in an hour. Met mike,you should have been here!
Well Mike,there aint much in the way of crops over here at the Jersey coast that the heat will damage but its killing me. My A/C is on the fritz and I wont be getting any help for a couple days even from the subs I use.
Bunch of in-grates lol
High of 86 in S.W Ont. but with parched soils crops are suffering
... I'm hoping that the "Silver Queen" hybrid is holding up for the sweet corn picking that's a coming just a little bit later down the road for you ???...
Our "personal "corn is fine-just not quite ready yet.
I had some from Maryland last nite and just didnt make the grade.
We grow 400 acres of sweet corn for a big operation that grows sweet corn from Florida to Toronto, Ont
They have contracts to supply corn yr around in major super markets
Bird damage is our biggest problem
We plant in 35 acre blocks so irrigation and harvest moves along with maturity
We have tassels every where, maybe 50% and some is approx. 12" high
Harvest usually starts approx. July 15
This yr might be earlier
When harvest starts we have fresh corn every day
Goona start spraying for bugs/worms next week
