Corn Planting-Chester Co. TN- April 2012

I had already planted about 3 acres of Powerplant on this farm, and we planted the rest in corn.  We had good soil moisture and a perfect day to plant!!  Enjoy!
Poured turpentine on the seed to keep the crows from pulling up the seeds and seedlings.  It works well, as that stuff stinks!!
Mixed Varieties of Pioneer Seed Corn
No-tilling the seed into the ground retains tons of soil moisture and really helps keep weeds at bay.

Here we are 21 days later..................
This area has had almost 5 inches of rain since this picture was taken!! On this day I sprayed and topdressed this corn with nitrogen.  I cant wait to see it now!!!!!
