Abstract

Irregular development and lateness of Iowa crops this year are cause for reflection as producers conduct late season evaluation of crops in individual fields, and plan when and how to harvest them for the greatest economic advantage. Late season evaluation involves reviewing normal crop growth and development, assessing the condition of the crops in individual fields relative to normal, and thinking through several autumn season scenarios such as: How will this field develop between now and the normal frost time? What are the concerns or alternatives if a frost comes one or two weeks earlier than normal?
