2015 Corn Club Results

This year was yet another in a string of record years for the producers in the 5 Acre Corn Club.

This year, yields averaged over 262 bushels per acre, up from 250 last year with 3 entries over 300 bu/acre. This year's yields caused the average annual yield increase to grow to 4.3 bushels per acre/year for the past twenty years, which is about twice the state average. Weather conditions were near ideal with little moisture stress throughout the season and few days with temperatures in the 90's, but a good amount of growing degree days in most areas.
