National corn yield contest winners announced for 2013

Dec. 20, 2013 | 0 comments

ST. LOUIS, MO

Advanced production techniques, informed growing practices and improved seed varieties helped corn growers achieve high yields in the National Corn Growers Association 2013 National Corn Yield Contest. Entrants continued to far surpass the national average corn yield, setting a contest record with a new all-time high yield of 454 bushels per acre. Additionally, a record five national entries surpassed the 400-plus bushel per acre mark.

The National Corn Yield Contest is in its 49th year and remains NCGA's most popular program for members, setting a new participation record this year with 8,827 entries. This surpasses the previous record of 8,431 entries, set in 2011, and far outstrips the 8,263 entries received in 2012.

"While this contest provides individual growers a chance for good-natured competition with their peers, it also advances farming as a whole," said Don Glenn, chairman of NCGA's Production and Stewardship Action Team. "The techniques and practices contest winners develop provide the basis for widely used advances that help farmers across the country excel in a variety of situations, including drought. This contest highlights how innovation, from both growers and technology providers, allows us to meet the growing demand for food, feed, fuel and fiber."

The 18 winners in six production categories had verified yields averaging more than 354.6 bushels per acre, compared to the projected national average of 160.4 bushels per acre in 2013. While there is no overall contest winner, yields from first, second and third place farmers overall production categories topped out at 454.9837.

The all-time high yield record of 454 bushels per acre was set by David Hula of Charles City, VA. The five national entrants recording yields of more than 400 bushels per acre are: David Hula of Charles City, VA; Johnny Hula of Charles City, VA; Double 'SA' Farms Inc. of Hart, TX; Randy Dowdy of Valdosta, GA; and Dowdy Farms/Curtis Davis/Renato Lamas of Valdosta, GA.
