    Need Some Help With The Corn

    I planted my first crop of corn and I am getting my first ears of corn. I noticed what maybe some worms. I have attached a few photos of the corn with what I think maybe some kind of bug or parasite. Can you tell me if they are worms and if so what should I use to spray the corn to get rid of them?

    Is there anything to control weeds on a watermelon patch? My watermelon is coming up very good and is starting to get their yellow blossoms. Some areas of the watermelon patch have a lot of weeds. At this point is there anything to use to control the weeds or is it a hopeless cause? Thanks As...

    Bulk Seed Source (This One Is Not Worth Buying From)

    I had purchased seed from Main Street Seed & Supply Co. I planted corn, peas, okra, eggplant, squash, cantaloupe, and watermelon. The peas, okra, eggplant, and squash did not germinate and did not get the first plant. The corn came up sporadic at best; I would venture I had less then 50%...

    Planters More Information On the Yetter Flex 71 Planter

    I have been looking at the Yetter Flex 71 one-row planter. It appears that you are better off buying your own 4-inch toolbar for your three-point hitch separately. If you buy their hitch assembly plus the tool bar from Yetter you are going to be well over $400. I believe you can purchase the...
