When to bag tassels:
As the tassels emerge from the top of the plant and mature, the lateral branches begin to droop away from the main stalk and become
horizontal.  Once  the  anthers  (usually  red  or  yellow  and  smaller
than  a  grain  of  rice)  start  to  emerge  along  the  tips  of  the  lateral  branches  and  the  main  branch  of  the  tassel,  the  tassel  is  ready
for bagging. If the tassels are bagged while they are still
green, they will stop developing and never shed pollen.
Weather and time of day have a strong bearing on when tassels will
shed  pollen.  High  humidity  can  cause  anthers  to  remain  closed.
Anthers  generally  begin  to  shed  pollen  in  the  morning  after  the
dew has evaporated and any morning chill is gone. Pollen shedding
decreases as temperatures top 86°F. Anthers may close up during
the hottest part of the day then reopen in the afternoon or evening. Therefore, the best time to bag tassels is in late afternoon the
day prior to pollination.
