38 X 16 X 34K / 90,000 = 217.6.

 

It's just that easy.

 

Unfortunately for us in C IN the 16 is a 14 and the 38 is a 32. Still pretty healthy so maybe we'll do 90K/bushel but I doubt it.

 

Anyway, that gets 180, which I sincerely doubt we'll do. But it is amazing how these high pops add up.

Re: 2011 corn in NCIA

i would say the math goes more like 32X16X33/95000

 

that gets you 177............and IMO thats probably an example of some of the best corn in IA..........it goes down hill from there

Re: 2011 corn in NCIA

NCIA is this considered good corn for you? Looks good to me. I see there is some tip back on these ears. Is that normal for that seeding population? I just got a Pioneer news letter in the mail a couple days ago that said if every ear is completely filled to the tip then seeding population isn't high enough? Im not sure I believe that completely but it does make some sense since the combine more than likely wont harvest those few kernels at the very tip anyway. Nice pics, thanks for sharing.

If the whole field looks like that it will make 200 easy.

Mizzou really you need to get out and take a trip through Iowa..... Especially Eastern Iowa near Iowa City and tell me that corn looks bad. You are right, we will not have a bumper crop by any means but I doubt we are as bad off as you say.

Re: 2011 corn in NCIA

Tipback is above normal.  This picture is from 2 years ago and the field yielded 230 BPA.  The corn on the left is DK 5259 which is the triple stack of the field posted earlier
