Drought effects on corn & soybeans
It is no secret that dry weather continues to be a concern across most of the area. Dry weather can hinder top end yield in the V5 to V8 stages of corn growth when the number of kernels per row is set. We see some strange things when it gets dry. Looking at our growing season thus far, most of the crop was planted in cool, dry soil. It was tough to get a perfect stand and weed control has been a battle. A common deficiency we see in corn in drought is potassium(K). Dry weather due to lack of moisture is causing the roots to fail to take up potassium. K deficiency starts on the tips of the lower leaves on the outside leaf margin. In truly deficient soils it will work its way up multiple leaves early in the growing season. In dry years, especially during the V5 stages of corn when the plant starts putting on nodal roots, K deficiency can often be confused with nitrogen deficiency. Even if it does rain and the plant starts utilizing the K in the soil it is unlikely we will see those lower leaves green up.
As beans near the reproductive stages, during drought stress, the soybeans flip their leaves so the underside is exposed to the sun light, rather than the darker top leaf being exposed. The leaf will then clamp to reduce the amount of sunlight that will hit it. The soybean plant will do this to reduce stress in the plant as well as slow down the amount and size of leaves it produces. Soybeans can handle drought stress in the early reproductive stages of the plant, but it can be very detrimental prior to pod fill and even in pod development.
