Uneven corn stands have plants with differing heights and growth stages. Important factors at planting for even corn growth and emergence are adequate soil moisture, optimum soil temperatures, and good seed-to-soil contact. If conditions exist that the emergence of more than half of a corn stand plants is delayed by three weeks or more, yield potential can be reduced, and replanting may be justified.
