Silks Covered in Pollen



Pollination is in progress!!
Each silk is attached to a single kernel of corn on each cob!! It is very important that pollen falls on each silk to produce a perfect cob of corn. At this stage of the growing process we can’t do overhead irrigation as it will disturb the process. This is just one more reason we are transitioning to a subsurface drip irrigation system!
