Field Corn Harvest Recommendations for Idaho
March 4, 2020
Field corn is infrequently discussed in Extension publications, even though Idaho farmers use the southern-grown crop for livestock feed. Grown along the Snake River Plain in southern Idaho, it's a warm-season product, requiring arid-climate irrigation and frost-free growing conditions; it also needs time to dry in the field. This timely publication discusses field corn harvest recommendations in Idaho, including ideal soil depth and temperature at planting, how to maximize yields at harvest, and how to maintain feed quality in storage.
