Lodged corn slowing harvest

This lodged Fairfield County corn is slowing things down in an already long harvest. The worst lodging in the fields is around the perimeter where the refuge was planted. Despite the lodging, yields are ranging from the 170s on up to around 220 bushels. Volunteer corn is a concern for next year, so Liberty Link soybeans will probably be planted. Refuge in the bag will also be used to prevent this refuge associated problem in the future. Have you seen much lodging in your fields?
