General view June 11,2003Another week has gone by and our field looks good and the plants continue to grow. 


Plant closeupThis plant is at the V6 stage. It has six true leaves and the seventh leaf is almost ready to be counted. Let's look closer at the whorl. 

Plant closeupYou can easily see three more leaves and then there's a cluster of leaves.  If this growing point is damaged for some reason, the plant will produce branches and the branches will produce multiple heads making it appear to be a wild type.
