In this corn field, in addition to poor pollination, CAPS Executive Farm Manager Tim Harris, AFM, has found that the ear attachment to the plant has also been weakened. Ears easily drop from the plants, suggesting that heavy winds prior to harvest, or even the harvest process itself, could cause additional yield loss do to ears dropping to the ground. In this clips, he demonstrates how easily the ears can be broken away, and shows a number that fell to the ground in the process of pulling back the husks to evaluate kernel development.
