This is outside the recently declared disaster zone. Each stalk is supposed to have two full ears of corn. As you can see, there was one plant with what looked like a full ear. The rest have one smaller ear and a stunt or nothing at all. It only gets worse from there. Some of the plants are only three feet high with no ears.
This corn isn't even food grade. It's to be used to feed cows or sent to the ethanol plant to make fuel. At this point, it's not much good for anything but an insurance claim.
