Subject: Implications of frost for corn and soybeans

Ag Clients,

Since we are expecting frost tonight, I want to pass along some
information that will help you to anticipate how tonight's temperatures
might affect yield and test weight of corn and soybeans. Some fields
have already black layered, and I was at one field late last week that
looked beautiful, but was just starting to dent.

Rather than re-invent the wheel, I will refer you to several resources
that spell it out quite clearly. I will preface this by saying that
this is not Michigan data, but the principles are general enough that I
am confident that they apply to us:

Table 1-29. Estimated Risks to Grain Corn Yield and Quality From
Late-Season Frost Damage
http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/crops/pub811/1other.htm#table1-29

Guidelines for Handling Corn Damaged by Frost Prior to Grain Maturity
http://corn.agronomy.wisc.edu/WCM/W156.aspx

Potential Yield Losses in Corn From Fall Frost Damage
http://www.ces.purdue.edu/extmedia/CL/CL-9.pdf

Assessing Frost Damage in Soybeans
http://www.ag.ndsu.edu/disaster/winterstorm/frostsoybeans.html

Ontario perspective on soybeans damaged by frost

http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/crops/pub811/2other.htm

You will notice some variability in their estimates of yield loss due to
frost at various stages, but they are fairly close.

It is supposed to get down to 28 degrees tonight, but what matters is
the temperature in the canopy. Zero degrees will kill the leaves, 28
will kill the whole plant, but how long those temperatures last will
affect this somewhat. The low temperature will occur around 7:00 a.m.
tomorrow.

If you have e-mail but no access to internet, please contact us and we
can print off some of these resources for you.

Do not hesitate to call if you have any questions.


Sincerely,

Dan Hudson
