GDU Update as of September 10th, 2019

As we get into fall, according to our GDU accumulation, we are getting within 15-18 days until black layer on some of the early maturity products planted in the early windows (early May).  We need some favorable weather to help us get through the next 3-4 weeks. We will be checking planting dates and maturities to keep everyone posted on what to expect in the next few weeks.

May 1st thru September 10th, 2019:  2128 (2312 Historical)
May 31st thru September 10th, 2019: 2086 (1885 + 201 converted)
(Every day that corn is planted after May 1st, the plant requires 6.7 less GDU’s to get to black layer..
30 days x 6.7 = 201 less GDU’s to get to maturity)
