Golden Acres Genetics Performance Test and Harvest Report

North, Central, Gulf Coast and Rio Grande Valley Regions of Texas Each year, Golden Acres Genetics, Ltd. coordinates a corn and grain sorghum variety testing program to ensure product performance. Our tests are conducted at a variety of locations with varied soil types, moisture availability, chemical treatments and general farming practices. The results of these tests are an opportunity for corn and grain sorghum producers to make the most informed decision of variety selection as possible for their farms. As many of you experienced, 2012 brought much-needed moisture to the droughtstricken agriculture landscape. Although the potential of bumper-crop yields gave way when the rain disappeared just as tassels were emerging, many of our cooperators were still able to obtain ‘better than average’ corn and grain sorghum yields. In addition, we were able to gather reliable data and are proud to present to you honest and unbiased data to let you decide what hybrids are best suited for your operation. Golden Acres would like to thank each one of our cooperators for their dedication and hard work to supply us with useful data. Without them, none of this would be possible. Special thanks to Dr. James ‘Doc’ Allison, Golden Acres’ Director of Product Development, for his relentless product evaluation and precise hybrid selection that continues to keep Golden Acres product portfolio one of the best in the South. A special thanks to Brooke Reich, Golden Acres’ Marketing Manager, for the cover design.

A Closer Look at Corn Pollination

Greg Steele, PhD, CCA Monsanto Technology Development

Corn pollination and fertilization is arguably the most important phase of crop development, next to planting and stand establishment. Although much of the yield potential of the corn plant (particularly ear length and row number) has been established earlier in the season, successful pollination can help determine the extent to which yield potential is met. Unfortunately, pollination is also one of the least controllable aspects of corn production since its success or failure is primarily influenced by environmental conditions. Better understanding the process; however, is the first step in learning to manage for a successful kernel set and grain fill.

Parts of the Corn Flower Corn is monoecious, which means that both male and female reproductive structures are present on each plant. However, unlike many other monoecious grasses and dicots, male and female flowers are separated on the corn plant. Given the separation of the ear and tassel on individual plants (and considering the vast amounts of pollen transported within a production field), it is understandable why corn is cross-pollinated. Although pollen shed and silking are temporally (somewhat) and spatially separated on a given plant, a small percentage (<5%) of kernels may be fertilized by pollen from the same plant.

The Tassel

Row number is determined shortly after ear initiation, but ear length is not completely set until just before tasselling. Therefore, severe stress from environmental conditions or herbicide injury can interfere with ear formation or row length beginning at around V5. Silks develop and elongate from the surface of each ovary on the ear. The silk functions as the stigma and style of the female flower. Silks begin growing from the ovaries at the base of the ear first, then progressing toward the ear tip. Consequently, silks from the base are the first to emerge from the husk, usually a couple of days after pollen shed has begun.

The Process: Pollination and Fertilization

Pollen shed (anthesis) begins shortly after the corn tassel Figure 1. Pictured, a corn The corn tassel is the male flower, or tassel, the male reproducis fully emerged from the whorl (VT stage). Spikelets near inflorescence, of corn. This male inflorescence tive structure of a corn the main axis of the tassel are the first to open, exposing consists of many spikelets, which are located plant. The duration of the the anthers that bear pollen grains. Flowering progresses along the main spike and lateral branches of the pollen shed can last up to upward and downward, then throughout the lateral tassel. The spikelets enclose two small flowers, or 2 weeks. branches. Pollen shed may occur for up to 2 weeks, but florets. Each floret contains the male reproductive usually lasts for 5-8 days, with peak shed by about day 3. structures, referred to as the stamen: The pollen grains are held on Flowering typically occurs in the morning, and may be delayed during the anthers, which are located at the end of a thin stem called the rain or excessive humidity. Generally, pollen shed and pollen viability filament. There are three anthers for each floret, each producing are minimally affected by environmental stresses. However, very hot, several thousand pollen grains. Thus an individual plant may dry conditions may reduce pollen viability and decrease length of pollen produce several million grains of pollen. The tassel has been shed. developing deep in the whorl of the plant since approximately V5. Severe stress, particularly chilling at tassel initiation can potentially Silks from the base of the ear are the first to emerge from the husk, reduce tassel branching and spikelet formation. followed by those progressively closer to the ear tip. Most silks are exposed within 2-3 days, but unusually long ears may exhibit poor The Ear pollination at the tip because of delayed silking. Silks can grow as much as 1-1.5 in/day, with maximum growth rate occurring by the 3rd or Beginning at about the V5 stage, potential ears are initiated at each 4th day after first silk. Silks will continue to elongate to some extent until node up to about the 12th to 14th leaf node, but it is normally only this pollinated, or until they senesce. Silk longevity is around 10 days under uppermost ear that fully develops. Depending on hybrid genetics typical growing conditions, but because not all silks are exposed and growing conditions, a secondary ear may develop at the next simultaneously viable silks may be present for around 14 days. In lower node. The female florets, containing the ovules that will addition to natural senescence, heat or moisture stress can desiccate become kernels upon successful fertilization, are located in paired the silks prematurely. This will normally appear as a somewhat erratic rows along the surface of the ear. A primary ear may develop up to 1000 ovules, of which only around 400-700 are usually harvested.

Planting and Stand Establishment activity can cause fertilized ovules to abort. This normally Under normal conditions, silking often does not occur until 2-3 days occurs with the youngest after pollen shed has begun. This is actually somewhat kernels, located at the tip of the inconsequential since nearly all the ovules on that ear will be ear. Aborted kernels can be fertilized as a result of cross-pollination. Although pollination is distinguished from unfertilized dependent on minute variances in flowering between plants, highly ovules by the accumulation of variable flowering dates in a given field can reduce total pollen starch in the aborted kernel. available to receptive silks. In addition to field variability, severe heat or moisture stress may delay silking and hasten pollen shed to the Management extent that little pollen remains when silks become receptive. Poor Considerations pollination resulting from asynchronous pollen shed and silking can result in barren ears, or unfertilized ovules occurring mainly toward Water use requirements for corn the tips of the ears. is at its maximum during pollination. Where available and Pollen that lands on a silk is captured by small hairs, or trichomes, when necessary, irrigation can present on the surface of the silk. The pollen grain germinates mitigate pollination problems immediately, producing a pollen tube that grows down the length of and enhance grain fill. the silk, resulting in fertilization of the ovule within 12 to 28 hours. Although many pollen grains may germinate along the surface of the silk, only one grain will generate a pollen tube resulting in fertilization. Over the next day or two, pollinated silks will desiccate and gradually turn brown. Normally, pollination is a continuous process with fertilization occurring gradually along the ear as silks emerge. A mass of long, green silks is an indication that pollination has not occurred. This could be the result of silk emergence after most pollen has shed, or delayed pollen shed due to extended rainy, cloudy conditions. The latter should be of little consequence if flowering resumes prior to silk senescence. However, anything that interferes with the optimum window for pollination could potentially reduce fertilization and kernel set. Additionally, the presence of extra silk tissue under these conditions could physically shield some silks from exposure to pollen.

Kernel Abortion Successful fertilization does not necessarily translate to kernel set. For several weeks following fertilization, reduced photosynthate caused by cloudy conditions, moisture stress, heat stress, or any

Figure 2. Pictured is a corn plant in silking stage. A strand of silk can grow 1 to 1.5 inches per day until pollination of the individual silk occurs.

Because nitrogen and phosphorous uptake are rapid during pollination and grain fill, proper fertility is necessary for optimum kernel set and reducing mobilization of nutrients from the stalk.

Select corn hybrids that are adapted to the area, and exhibit proper heat and drought tolerance for your growing conditions. Spread risk by diversifying your mix with hybrids that pollinate at different times/different maturities.

Avoid late planting which could result in pollination occurring during the hottest (and possibly driest) part of the summer.

Manage fields, when possible, to reduce variability in corn growth stages, and subsequent variability in flowering. Monitor fields for corn rootworm adults that may feed on silks.

“The Scouting Report” Aflatoxin – The other ‘A’ word Aflatoxins are naturally occurring, toxic chemical by-products of the Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus parasiticus mold fungi. The term ‘Aflatoxin’ is actually derived from the ‘A’ in Aspergillus, ‘fla’ in flavus and toxin from the chemical by-product. Aflatoxin is not only found in corn, but in other crops like peanuts and cottonseed. As I’m sure many of you are already aware, Aflatoxin is toxic to animals (especially young) and poultry. We can thank the British for finding that one out for us back in the late 70’s. The biggest concern producers have when it comes to Aflatoxin is a) How and why does Aflatoxin occur, and b) What can I do once I have an infested field of corn with the fungus? Unfortunately, the normally hot and dry summer months in the South are the perfect environment for Aflatoxin development. The fungi is most common under drought conditions, high temperatures (80-100F) and high humidity levels (85%) during pollination and grain development. The airborne fungi can attack any kernel that is exposed to the environment, either by damage (e.g. hail damage) or poor husk cover. There are several plant pathologists that say that increased management practices of corn to promote healthy plants and good weed and insect control generally will help with aflatoxin control. Dr. Erick Larson of Mississippi State University Extension reported “...timely planting, adequate fertility, good weed and insect control, supplemental irrigation, suitable plant population and hybrid selection should help reduce aflatoxin potential...hybrids that perform well in drought conditions generally have lower aflatoxin concentrations than of hybrids that yield poorly in the same drought conditions.”(1) If any of you have ever had the pleasure of walking a corn plot with Dr. James ‘Doc’ Allison, Golden Acres Director of Product Development, you’ll know very quickly that he has a couple of favorite phenotypic traits he looks for in corn hybrids. Stay-green and husk cover. If the hybrid doesn’t have good huskcover (‘Grinner’, as Doc calls ‘em) it goes in the ‘not adapted column’. I can assure you that Golden Acres works hard to determine adaptability of corn hybrids based on specific needs for our market area. Some researchers and agronomists will suggest if you have aflatoxin prevalent in a field or feel like the weather will be ideal for fungal growth to harvest early and dry on your own or through an elevator. Harvest decisions are up to you. I don’t know that there is a ‘silver bullet’ or direct answer. However, there are some things you can do if you have fields with aflatoxin and some without. Things like harvesting your fields separately - don’t mix the infected grain with the clean grain. The easiest analogy for me to explain is to think of your corn fields as patients and you being the doctor. If you have a dozen ‘semi-healthy’ or ‘mostly healthy’ patients in a waiting room waiting for regular checkups, you wouldn’t put them all in an exam room with a person with smallpox or the E. Bola virus. I know that’s a little extreme but the thought process is there. Harvest your good fields separately, keep your equipment clean (combines, trucks, pits, grain carts and augers) and be thorough. As little as five infected kernels in a 5 pound sample (20 ppb) will get you docked at the elevator. Adjust your combine to minimize kernel damage. Damaged pericarps are prime spots for aflatoxin infections. Scout at blacklayer to look for any insect damage, other ear damage or evidence of the spores. If you have aflatoxin contaminated corn, Texas is one of the only states that allow anhydrous ammonia applications, however I would be very cautious when using this technique and consult a professional. It is not regulated for inter-state commerce. (1) “Minimizing Aflatoxin in Corn.” Larson, Erick. Mississippi State University. Information Sheet 1563.
