What is your secret?  I planted corn for the first time ever (about 3 acres) and it was doing great. One weekend I checked it and it was healthy and about 2' tall and 2 weeks later I went back and it was yellow and had been decimated by grasshoppers.  I assume that you are supposed to apply a pesticide to keep the critters off!  We also have about 4 acres of peas planted next to the corn and it is still doing great.  Do grasshoppers only like corn?

I'm not sure what the secret is. I planted it when everybody said it was too early.  We had plenty of rain and I really put the fertilizer to it. Checked it today and the ears are full!!
Knock on wood the grasshoppers have not been a problem. 
Last week I finally put Milorganite on the beans and it seemed to help a little bit. The beans in the test cages are about 14"-16" tall. Outside the cage they are anywhere from 3"-6". 
Thank You.

BWHTR...I'm having the same proplem with the power plant...I planted field corn next to it and hardly anything came up...VERY THIN....wire worms got the seed...the the weeds had plenty of sun to grow...but left them for this was suppose to be a visual barrier...that has the growth slow but they are green and healthy...The power plant right next door....the beans are great and getting hit hard...the corn I threw in is doing great but the sorghum in the mix is just 2ft tall and turning yellow...the power plant on top of hill is now taking off great and is 3ft tall and the beans and the sunflower are 2ft tall..

The lower field is drier and sandy...It may be an iron deficiency due to all the rains we had this spring -summer....I'll be fertilizing today before the rains and if that doesn't work buying a few bags of iron-x...I pulled a couple of plants and the roots looked good so I don't think it's bug related

corn is a huge nitrogen hog. beans need potassium and phosphorous I had no luck w/ beans this year. last year they were rock stars. sometimes mother nature has different plans

Everything worked out this year yari.  I just hit it at the right times. I believe I put 100 lbs of 46-0-0 on that small plot of corn.  I'll get some current pic's and send them to ya in the next week or so. If we don't get some rain soon our beans are going to be just stubble.  Speaking of rain it is just now starting to sprinkle on the truck windows. Hopefully they do a little better.  I planted Winter Greens last week in the beans thinking the beans were going to get big enough to shade the ground.  Hoping that the beans help the Winter Greens with the nitrogen.
