Record corn yields set in nine counties in 2013

April 8, 2014 | 0 comments


Although 2013 was not a great year for growing corn in Wisconsin, record yields were set nonetheless in nine of the state's counties, according to a recent report by Extension Service corn agronomist Joe Lauer. The record yields were verified through participation by the growers in the National Corn Growers Association yield contest.

The new records for counties in 2013 included 292 bushels per acre on the Kevin Bahr farm near Darlington in Lafayette County with Dekalb DKC63-33RIB, 286 bushels with Dekalb DKC66-40RIB on the Buck Fenwick farm near Brodhead in Green County, 283 bushels on the Mark Bacon farm at Hancock in Waushara County with Pioneer's P0533AM1, and 273 bushels with Dekalb's DKC53-56RIB on the Pete Sendelbach farm near Evansville in Rock County.

Other record setters were 265 bushels per acre with Channel 210-57STXRIB on the Martin Sprecher farm near Lone Rock in Richland County, 249 bushels with Dekalb DKC53-56RIB on the Melvin Gunnink farm near Brandon in western Fond du Lac County, 245 bushels with Pioneer's P0533AM1 on both the Richard Gunz farm at Endeavor in Marquette County and the Matt Wichman farm near Marion in Waupaca County, and 224 bushels with Dekalb's DKC43-48 on the Matt Wagenson farm at Schiocton in northern Outagamie County.

Although is was not a record yield for Grant County, the 322 bushels per acre harvested by Gene Steiger of Bloomington from his Dekalb DKC62-08RIB was the highest verified yield in Wisconsin for 2013. It was one bushel less than the previous record yield in Grant County.

The highest recorded corn grain yield in Wisconsin was the 327 bushels per acre from Pioneer's P0533AM1 on the Jeff Laskowski farm near Plover in Portage County in 2012.
