Standing Corn Up

growingcorn added on July 11, 2011 | Answered

I had 9 great looking 3-4 foot tall rows of corn and today we had a big storm and the wind blew down 99. 9% of it! Do I just leave it or try to stand it up?

Try to stand it up. It may not recover, but it will definitely not recover if left laying down. If you stand it up, it has a chance that it will be able to still grow normally, though it will need to be propped up until harvest.
