    No rain for a few days, hay is laying everywhere. Baled by Sat.

    Is the hay's quality reduced by staying in the field so long?

    They finally cut the field grass today. Leaving a huge patch of purple flowered thistle that borders the complete north side of my garden.

    They should mow the thistle off or spray it - not to get anyone in trouble but in Indiana it is a noxious weed and the landowner is legally required to not allow it to go to seed. Talk to them first, if they won't cooperate then call the township trustee as a first step, they will either make them comply or the surveyors office will spray it and bill the owner which gets tacked on to the property tax bill as a last resort.
    Early bloom really is the best time to spray it.

    I'm really late to this party, there is a lot in here and natdscott seems to nail right most of it on the head.
    The OP asked about 90 day corn, that is the relative maturity rating of a given hybrid, each hybrid has its own relative maturity. It is generally accepted as the length of time from emergence to physiological maturity, or 'black layer', when the grain fill has maxed out.
    Typically in central IN we plant 105 to 115 day corn, depending on yield goals, storage and drying capability, etc. Many switched to earlier hybrids, which was probably what you heard them talking about on the radio.
    Another quick note, the RM has nothing to do with actual days so don't try to figure it out calenderically, it has more to do with growing degree days but standard vary from company to company. This is why we may have an ok crop *IF* we have a later than normal frost.
