Field Notes: This trial experienced some hail damage that striped leaves off on many plants early in the season the north end had been damaged more this delayed the maturity but the corn came back very well. The hail damage may have affected the cob height as well  corn header was set as low as possible in order to pick up cobs; as a result the grain moisture was higher than normal.
