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.

This is the fourth year that Paulding County 4-Her Austin Conlon has served as a counselor at the summer 4-H Camp at Camp Palmer in Fulton County. These days, Conlon realizes the experience has not only been fun, but has given him the opportunity to look at things from an adult perspective.

This year’s camp will take place July 9-13. However, registration forms for those attending are due by June 23. Paulding County assistant program director Staci Hiler noted that this year’s goal is to have 150 in attendance between campers and counselors.
