Tour reveals 194.6 bpa average

September 3, 2018


PONTIAC – The third annual yield tour from the Livingston County Corn Growers Association revealed an average county corn yield of 194.6 bushels per acre, which is close to averages from the past two years.


“I was expecting a much wider range from low to high,” said LCCGA vice-president Bob Lawless. “You could tell which fields had a fungicide applied. Many were dead.”


Those participating in last week’s tour observed tip-back and zippering on ears, especially at higher populations. The eastern part of Livingston County was extremely dry with corn falling over where it died prematurely on tougher soils. Even with the best soils and good population, many of the ears were not able to get maximum yields.


“The pile of ears (in the truck) almost looked like they could have all come out of the same field,” Lawless added.
