Greensnap, also known as “Brittle Snap” or “Brittle Corn” is the breaking of corn plants during a period of rapid growth & development due to extreme wind events.
Fields Most Susceptible to Greensnap
High organic matter, excellent base fertility, irrigation and other high yield management practices increase the rate of plant growth and cell wall expansion.
Hybrid’s planted under different management conditions can result in drastically different amounts of greensnap during the same wind event.
Every hybrid has the ability to greensnap under the right conditions
