PAULDING – A majority of county farmers have finished planting and replanting crops and are finishing much of their side dressing work, said Paulding County Ohio State University Extension agent Sarah Noggle earlier this week.

“Much of the corn is in that V-3 and V-4 stage right now,” said Noggle on Monday. “At least 70 percent of the side dressing is done.”

Noggle said that some of the corn has been knocked over by “flopping corn syndrome,” a condition that sometimes occurs when the mesocotyl isn’t fully developed and strong winds blow through the field.
