He tells Brownfield it isn’t too early for farmers to monitor stalks ahead of harvest.  “I think there is a likelihood that if we continue to go through some of these dry conditions some of these corn plants, hybrid dependent, may start breaking down some of those energy reserves inside of that stalk a little earlier than we would normally see,” he says.
