2012 Corn Production Efficiency Award

Posted by romeethredge on August 22, 2013

Stephen Scott was honored recently for corn he grew last year. He got 2nd place in the Georgia High Yield Corn Production Efficiency program. This program looks at documented yields of a minimum of one acre of corn and it takes into account the efficiency with which it was grown. All costs are looked at.

Stephen grew some Pioneer 2023 corn that yielded 291bushels per acre. He grew it for $2.69 per bushel.  We are proud to have  many farmers here that do a great job with corn production.  I get calls from all over Georgia asking how our farmers do things and what they do in certain situations and circumstances with the corn crops.

The photo below is him in some of this year’s corn which also did well, but not like last year.
