These ears were from medium maturity commercial corn hybrid planted
5/26/95 in westcentral Indiana that pollinated in mid-July during the period
where consecutive days of mid- to high 90's temperatures. The poor kernel set
was likely caused by a combination of slow silk elongation, reduced silk
receptivity, and Japanese beetle silk clipping.
