    Most of the corn acreage in Ohio now should have reached the silking stage, except for delayed planting conditions. Some fields have already transitioned to dough and milk stages. A new simulation of 2023 end-of-season corn yield potential and crop staging was performed on August 2, using the UNL Hybrid-Maize crop model in collaboration with faculty and extension educators from 10 universities.
