The corn is now approaching 5 feet. It has grown almost 2 feet in the last 6 days. We've had over an inch of rain in the last week. They are forecasting more for tonight. We really could use more sunshine as we are now 5 days behind on growing degree units.
Hi! My name is Sharon Greif. I grew up with corn in rural Illinois where my dad raised seed corn for an old company called Hulting Hybrids. I detasseled corn in high school & have NO desire to ever do that again!
I graduated from Iowa State University where I studied marketing. After three years of living in the "Big City", I decided to follow my love of agriculture and took a job as a district sales manager for a seed corn company. I was assigned a territory in Iowa, where I met & married a corn and soybean farmer from Prairieburg Iowa. Thirty-two years later, I'm still in Iowa, though I love Illinois also.
I served on the Iowa Corn Grower board in the 90's as a district director. I've also served on the Iowa Women in Ag committee and I currently serve on the board of the Iowa Arabian Horse Association.
I love Iowa State football & basketball, Arabian horses, Boxer dogs, and I am passionate about agriculture & it's story.
