One of those key items we are studying in the mid-July heat is where his Nitrogen is at for his contest corn. The agricultural industry talks about Nitrogen quite frequently and is always a concern for farmers if they have too much or not enough. A great way to measure that is tissue sampling from V6 to R3 corn to see how much the plant is up taking through the growing season.
