Tainted Corn?

Postby Benny8 » Tue Sep 06, 2011 5:40 pm

I found out today that some of the corn fields that got flooded by the Connecticut River cannot be harvested for silage because of the bacteria from Sewer treatment plants on other tributaries that got flooded. Makes me wonder what the farmers will be doing with those fields?Anyone have any idea?

It will still get cut. They still got to plow the fields for next year.

I know they will get cut. I was refering more towards, will they keep them standing through the winter for the deer and other wildlife or will they chop it down and leave it or what?

If you array lookin for that specific of an answer you may want to knock on the farmers door and ask him.

Thanks mush. That was what I was looking for, someone who had seen something like that done in the past.

That is normal farming practice and make sure to let me know where that field is when it floods again... :yes:

Have you noticed that common sense is not as common as it used to be???
