Information Management to Maximize Your Yields

Yellow Corn Leaves

As the corn is starting to grow rapidly, some yellow leaves are being reported in central and west central Iowa.  This is seen at corn stages V5 to V8.

The yellow leaves are seen in the top leaves of the plant and  caused by sun-starved leaves entrapped in the whole by more mature leaves.

Yellow leaves should turn green in just a few days as they accumulate chlorophyll through photosynthesis.  Not to be alarmed the overall yield loss on the field should be little to none.
