Should I replant?

Sat Jun 15, 2013 2:45 pm

I planted my corn two weeks ago right before we got hit with rain, lots of it. Since I planted we had 24" of rain, it is not coming up. Should I replant, does corn seed rot in the ground with too much rain? We only had a few days of sunshine mostly mixed with more rain. Or should I wait to see what happens? Last year I had a great corn crop, it was awesome. Any thoughts?

Chris,

Yes, replant for a whole host of reasons. When the ground dries enough to work it, do so and then replant. DO NOT< DO NOT work the ground wet, you will pay a handsome price for doing so.

Needs re-planted!---but as stated,---just make sure the ground is dry when you do work it or you will have "mudballs" and nothing will grow in that! thanks; sonny
