This corn sample has flea beetle damage. Flea beetle feeding does not concern us unless: 1) Stewart's disease is a possibility (not in this case), 2) spike to 2 leaf corn is "covered" with them and the corn is not growing due to cool, wet conditions. Rain and sunshine are the cure for the little bit of feeding.
