Uneven Corn Emergence
Many growers are starting to understand the role that even emergence plays in determining your final corn yields. While several different factors can affect the speed and vigor of your corn’s emergence after planting, some are easier to control than others. As you know, for every 1,000 seeds that don’t emerge, you can see a 7 bushel yield hit. However, most growers don’t fully appreciate the yield hit that comes from late emerging corn or corn that breaks through after the first seedlings begin to emerge.
Our Invigor 8 seed treatment can help you with better emergence and a faster start to the season. For even stronger results, try our Invigor 8 +, a seed treatment with a biological component. Learn more about these corn seed treatments.
