2013 Five Acre Corn Club Results

This was another record breaking year for the Corn Club, with yields averaging 236.9 bushels per acre. There was a time when 200 bushels per acre was a top yield but this year only 4 of the 54 entries were less than 200 bushels. The 2013 Corn Club is a testament to our growers commitment to striving for higher yields. Our records indicated that corn club yields have been growing at about 3.7 bushels per acre per year, almost twice the growth rate of average yields in the state which are increasing at 2.0 bushels per acre.
