I’m hoping for some advice from the diversity of knowledge and expertise available here. I’ve been planting various brands of round up ready field corn for several years. When the weather cooperates, I’ve been using the 93 or 91 day seed planted late May or early June. In comparison, I used 75 day corn this year in a couple plots because that’s all the seed dealer had available. The stalks are much thinner and shorter, and the cobs are only slightly smaller. As I’ve thought about it, I don’t need 9-10’ tall stalks. Because the planting is solely for wildlife, I let it stand through the winter and brush hog in the spring. Those taller thicker stalks are really tough to work back into the soil (the brush hog doesn’t chop those lying flat on the ground). Indeed, last spring I ended up using a York rake to get a signicant amount of it out of the fields. It seems to me, the added mass of tall stalks might make sense for farmers looking to feed cattle and who have the equipment to get most of the biomass out of the fields. Doesn’t make sense to me. What else should I be considering? Thanks!
