Consider Seed Treatments, Reducing Rye BiomassGrowers can also try seed treatments to help protect the corn a little more... Since the amount of biomass may play a role in the likelihood of seedling disease, Robertson adds that growers may consider reducing the biomass before termination, whether it’s through grazing the cover crop or harvesting some of it. “If that rye is hip high when you terminate it and then you plant your corn into it, you may have more of a problem than if that rye is only ankle high,” she explains, noting that again, if the conditions are ideal for corn to emerge rapidly, growers can probably get away with more biomass and terminating closer to planting...
