It seems inevitable that we cannot get through a spring without talking about replant issues to some degree. Although the majority of the corn in the state appears to be fine, there are some areas that will have to deal with replanting. Mark Carlton, extension field crops specialist in south-central Iowa, has reported seeing fields that need to be replanted due to a lack of coleoptile growth or mesocotyl rot. (See "Corn seedling health and stand establishment" on page 131.)
