Here's a pic of me after a day of cultivation.

The row cultivator behind the Deere 4020, taken about June 23rd. This is after the first pass with the cultivator.
The photos below were taken about a week later, after we'd received 1+" of rain and had temps in the 80's. The foxtail is very thick in about 15 acres. All in areas that are wetter than normal due to the drainage/topography of the land. I've been thinking about how to better control the foxtail. There isn't anything else I could do, mechanically. The corn will be ok, as it can outgrow the foxtail. In following years other crops won't be able to do that.
Most of the above pic shows how thick the foxtail gets. A little on the left rows shows what it looks like after my first pass through with the row cultivator.
Today the corn is about chest high and is looking good. More on that in the next post.
