We began harvesting the 2011 corn crop at our Agronology 10 Research Center in Walcott on September 25, 2011. The 105 day corn planted in the borders yielded 180 Bu/A with harvest moisture at 19.8% and test weight was 57.8 lbs/bushel. The 2011 yield in the border is 20 Bu/A less than previous years.
With this year’s stalk quality being very suspect due to this year’s stressful weather conditions, I would recommend that corn harvest start sooner versus later. Happy harvesting!
