  • Below 50F (10C) stands can be reduced
  • The temperature of the imbibed moisture in the FIRST 24 hrs is the most critical (melting Snow/ cold rain fronts are bad)
  • Temperatures of sandy soils fluctuate more from day to night than soils with higher moisture holding capacity
  • Plant deeper- temps at 2-2.5” will fluctuate less than at temps at 1.5”
  • Plant higher stress emergence score hybrids first
  • Plan on losing 15-20% of drop in a stressful environment with cold soil and temperature fluctuation- if you want 27-28k final stand on the sand, you probably should drop 33k+ in stressful cold soil
