Feeling under the wire to get corn in the ground? Texas farmers who may have been impacted by recent weather events, or delayed still have time to plant corn within the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Risk Management Agency (RMA) requirements.
Most of the Texas High Plains has a June 5 final planting date for irrigated corn, with some neighboring New Mexico counties having a final planting date of June 15. The map below outlines final planting dates for irrigated corn in Texas.
Non-irrigated corn final planting dates have passed. View RMA’s 2019 non-irrigated corn final planting dates map HERE.
If farmers have any questions about planting dates in relation to their insurance policy, Texas Corn Producers advises getting in touch with their insurance agent.
