During recent years there has been a trend toward planting corn earlier in Iowa. Some of the reasons for this are: 1) improved fungicide seed treatments, 2) herbicides for weed control, 3) less farmers' concern over losing a stand due to a late spring freeze, and 4) research data showing higher yields from early planted corn.
