Re: 18% corn

Good deal. Harvest goes so much smoother when you have dryer corn to deal with. I think mine was about 18% as well. I don't plant later varieties to make it more convenient for my custom operator. Not sure that additional yields from later varieties would justify the additional drying charges. besides i like to put 18% corn in the bins and manage it with air. I Like to freeze it up solid when temps reach sub zero and it will be good for quite a while.

Re: 18% corn

Maturity is weakly correlated to yield as most yield trials report.

I plant some very short day corn that is 80-90 but has 100 day yields

Re: 18% corn

I live near you and we went the last half of summer without rain. Did you get some that I missed?
