Safflower after hail notice the lack of leaves an heads on the ground. It cost me more than half of our usual production.

Not huge hail but it was very damaging it also ruined a lot of alfalfa hay.

Re: Hail Damage
How much was the yield going down after this hail storm? Did the crop recovered afterwards?

Re: Hail Damage
Yes, I am also interested in what happened with corn.
Have seen maize (corn) here in NZ damaged with hail when nearing end of maturity/starting to dry down that was harvested for silage - excellent quality with high cob/stover ratio so ME was higher with higher grain content.
What stage was your corn when struck by hail ?

Re: Hail Damage
I was away for a medical conference so am a little late answering questions.Corn was in the milk to soft dough stage of the kernel it matured very slowly due to the lack of photosynthesis. The corn was grown for forage and was estimated at 26 ton to the acre. Actual yield was 16 ton .It froze due to our 5300' elevation and relatively short season we usually plant corn with 97-103 day label.
