Have you tried 2 crops of corn before? It seems to me it should work fine because your weather is not too extremely hot during the summer.
I have tried that in TN but 100 deg weather July and Aug is a bit hot for a 2nd crop of corn. I have to water every day to get the seeds to grow then I have to water every day to make it grow taller than 3 ft. Even then the late corn is stunted and ears are small. I have learned to plant 2nd corn in August then it matures late Oct just before frost when it is cooler this works good for me.
I have relatives that live in Decatur and relatives in Winsor. My cousin plants 2000 acres of field corn every summer. The guy planting field corn next to you could be my cousin. LOL. I tell people in TN how the corn in IL goes on as far as you can see in all directions for 100s of miles they don't believe it. I use to have photos but lost them. Land is flat at a table up there it is easy to see 20 miles of corn.
