    By Laura Barrera

    Published Apr 19

Research has shown that corn yields can take a hit after cereal rye, but it doesn’t happen every time... Pathogens at PlayOne of the reasons corn may suffer after cereal rye is if the rye is serving as a “green bridge,” where pathogens that were infecting the rye move onto the growing corn as the rye dies... In a 2018 Iowa Learning Farms (ILF) webinar, she explained that researchers first confirmed that rye can host several pathogens, including:Fusarium graminearum — which causes several diseases, including stalk rot and ear rot of corn, head scab of wheat, etc. Pythium sylvaticum — which causes corn and soybean seedling diseaseA field experiment funded by the Iowa Nutrient Research Center was conducted in 2014 and 2015 to determine whether the rye could serve as a green bridge in transferring those pathogens to corn...

    By Laura Barrera

    Published Aug 13, 2018

    According to a paper written by University of Kentucky soil scientist John Grove, Ward and University of Maryland soil scientist Ray Weil, research conducted in Kentucky from 1980-81 looked at corn’s uptake of surface-applied potassium under moldboard plowed and no-tilled plots that were established in 1970... 132 ppm in the moldboard plowed plot — potassium uptake of the no-tilled corn was 130% of the moldboard-plowed corn... Scientists concluded “this strongly suggests that the potassium nutrition of the two corn crops was improved by potassium stratification... WeilJasa’s research also supports that placing phosphorus higher in the soil for corn performs better than phosphorus placed deeper. In 2004, he compared yields between corn that received:No phosphorusPhosphorus applied with an anhydrous applicator at 5 inches deep, 15 inches from the rowPhosphorus applied 5 inches deep, 5 inches away on both sides of the rowPhosphorus applied in-furrowThe corn that received the 5x5 and in-furrow placements both yielded around 10 bushels higher than the other two applications, and Jasa notes that the 5x5 and in-furrow were statistically the same yield...

    Published Jun 6, 2018

    The USDA began reporting corn yield estimates in 1866. That year, the average farm was harvesting 24... 6 bushels of corn per acre... Yield averages in corn remained relatively flat for nearly 70 years from the mid-1800’s until hybrids were widely introduced and adopted by farmers in the 1940’s. Then, in the late 1990’s genetically modified (GM) corn hit the market and Roundup Ready hybrids became the new norm for farmers looking for a more efficient way to manage weeds...
