VIDEO: Management of Volunteer Corn

How do we manage this year's corn so we have a handle on volunteer corn next year?

August's derecho left many Iowans with unharvestable corn. For operations that left their corn in the field, decisions should be made to reduce the problem of volunteer corn next planting season. 

In this video, Field Agronomist Meaghan Anderson and Weed Specialist Bob Hartzler discuss the unique situation many farmers face with volunteer and options for encouraging germination this fall and reducing the number of volunteer plants you may have to deal with next year.
