In Part I of this article, I addressed the current situation and Iowa corn performance in 2012. In that article, I discussed modeled results relating to whether or not we should alter seeding rates if soils are dry at planting this spring. Here I intend to discuss how changing hybrid relative maturities affects yield with different starting points for soil moisture. I addressed both of these issues in January 2012 in a series of three ICM News articles.
