Rev up those Combines…


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!
