Corn lodging for Noobies
No, that is not where you stay while tending your corn patch. Lodging is an agricultural term for a grain crop falling over or being blown over by wind. Corn is especially susceptible as it is tall and thus subject to much wind loading. If you grow corn, at some point you will go out and discover something like the photo below. Most typically there is not breakage of the stalk, the plant has just partially uprooted and laid down. Your first impulse likely will be to intervene in some way. Don't do it. In most cases doing nothing is best. Corn plants have an amazing ability to right themselves. The photo below was taken a couple of mornings ago. I will follow up in a week or so with another photo and you can see how it works. The stalks will have considerable curvature but the upper portion of the plant will have returned to vertical.
