Record Broke for Corn Yield in 2013
December 27, 2013

David Hula of Charles City, Va., broke the corn yield world record in the 2013 National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) Corn Yield Contest, according to DuPont Pioneer.  Winning the No-Till/Strip-Till Irrigated category, David Hula produced an entry of 454.98 bushels per acre, the highest mark ever recorded by the NCGA in its annual contest. Hula planted Pioneer® brand hybrid P2088YHR.

Johnny Hula, also of Charles City, Va., had the second highest recorded yield at 421.26 bushels/acre, placing second in the No-Till/Strip-Till Irrigated category, and  Double ‘SA’ Farms, Inc., Hart, Texas, had the third highest yield, winning the Irrigated category at 418.34 bushels/acre.

The NCGA Corn Yield contest is an annual U.S. national competition among corn growers with the goal of capitalizing on the high genetic yield potential of today’s corn hybrids. Growers compete in six corn production classes, including non-irrigated (A and AA), no-till/strip-till non-irrigated (A and AA), irrigated and no-till/strip-till irrigated classes.  The class A Non-Irrigated Class is open to corn producers in the continental United States, except for Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio or Wisconsin. The AA Non-Irrigated Class is for corn producers entering a hybrid located in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio or Wisconsin.
