Developmental stages (life cycle)

Life Cycle Stages

The staging system divides corn development into vegetative (V) and reproductive (R) stages. V stages are designated VE (emergence), Vn, where n represents the emerging leaf's order number, and VT (tasseling). Depending on the hybrid each plant develops 20-21 total leaves, silks about 65 days after emergence, and matures about 125 days after emergence.
