    Our water might finally be dropping out and I might consider tossing some BYG seed out. I hear 80 days to seed. Our first frost is usually mid oct. Is it worth the risk?

    Probably fine, just going to get a shorter plant with a somewhat reduced yield. Also depends on the variety as to how quickly it matures.

    A plant’s main goal is to make seed. I believe that plant can tell it’s planted late and will speed up its stages to make seed. This can hurt yield but I’ve planted 110 day corn this late in the year and had a frost late october and still made good corn. Same way a farmer can have a section of his field flood out, he replants and the replanted part will wind up catching up to the rest and all be harvested at the same time. His replanted section will just yield less most likely. Helps to have really fertile ground.
