Well I did it last night. I got brave enough or mad enough to walk into some of the worst looking corn I have. The same field the Farm Progress video was shot in.
Here are the results: 5 random ears pulled from 17.5 ft of row. That is representing 1/1000 of an acre, a representative sample in the ag world.
A picture is worth a thousand words they say. Well this one screams those words in a high pitch as well.
I will say that better than 65% of my corn fields looks like this, 20% may look as good as the photo I posted in the blog post before this one and the last 15 % never put out an ear.
Been on the road to meetings the last few days, will post an update on some things I learned later tomorrow.
