Green Area

Marketable grain yield represents about half of the total above ground crop dry matter produced.

Looking at the dry matter weight of some crops it is hard to think that yields are going to be anything very special come harvest.

Since the greatest increase in green area index occurs between GS 30 and 39 and that has now past even the rain this weekend is not going to bulk up what has already formed.

The one thing it will do though is increase the chance that disease will become more common and consequently damaging.
