document Q: When is the appropriate corn growth stage to start using OptRx sensors?
Question: When is the appropriate growth stage to begin using OptRx crop sensors for corn? Answer: V5 is the earliest recommended growth stage to operate OptRx sensors in corn.

Tasselling interferes with the sensor's ability to accurately identify plant vigor.
